– FundProsthesis
 Breast prosthetics are essential for breast cancer patients, who have
undergone full or partial breast removal surgery, in order to continue with their
routine tasks with confidence.
 One such prosthetic costs about Rs.200/=, and we currently donate about 30
to 40 such units per month.
 Since 2009 we have donated 3760 breast prosthesis, worth of Rs.752,000/=.
YEAR 2014 @CCASL – Drug Project
 We are continuously supporting cancer patients who cannot afford to have
some chemotherapy or other drugs due to their financial status.
 Hence our drug fund is continuously stretched to its limit and is in need of
essential funds to replenish this requirement.
