Solace is a voluntary organization registered as a Trust under the Charitable Societies Act of Kerala. Today patients from all over Kerala have been directed to Solace by various medical colleges and their treatment, both curative and palliative, in totality is serviced by Solace.
Our mission is to care for children with long term illnesses and stand by their families. strengthening and comforting them as they face up to the harsh realities .In fact, we live their lives experiencing their difficult times along with them and offering assistance whenever necessary.
Starting as a Play Therapy Unit In 2007 beside the Leukemia ward of Govt. Medical College, Thrissur, Solace has grown from tending to the needs of 15 children to supporting over 1800 children today suffering long term illnesses like Cancer, Thalassemia, Cerebral palsy, Nephrotic syndrome, Hemophilia, Heart diseases, Fits, Wilson disease, Mental retardation, Juvenile arthritis, Epilepsy, Hearing loss etc.
In most of the cases registered with Solace, the families of the children are deeply affected and their lives revolve around providing care for the ill child. Paternal assistance is often minimal to nil and it is the mothers who struggle to make both ends meet.So we help by providing prescribed medicines, funds for special treatments like chemotherapy, radiation therapy etc.
Solace ensures that the best medical treatment is made available so that the children suffering long term illnesses have the best possible chance to recover and go on to lead quality lives.
