Jeevan Sahara Kendra is a team of people with a heart to reach out to people with HIV/AIDS and their families.
Working as a project of the Bethany Trust (Thane) the Jeevan Sahara Kendra seeks to see hope, healing and life for people and families affected by HIV in Thane. Jeevan Sahara Kendra also seeks to build up local churches to become places where people with HIV/AIDS can be cared for.
The JSK team works to provide whole-person care to people with HIV/AIDS in Thane through:
a) Personal and family counselling – helping people with HIV and their families understand HIV/AIDS and make constructive choices in their lives.
b) Rational medical help – understanding the person’s HIV progression, helping with Anti-Retroviral Therapy and caring for people with HIV who need hospitalisation at our Community Care Centre.
c) Compassionate palliative care – working with people who are not responding to treatment – and caring for them in their homes by making their last days as comfortable and meaningful as possible
The team also seeks to mobilise Thane churches to reach out and care for people and families with HIV/AIDS.
