The main focus is to empower lone mothers and needy women from cancer afflicted families through financial and moral support as well as by providing employment opportunities.
Patients with cancer who live at home often require help with activities of daily living, basic medical care (eg, injections), social needs, and patient advocacy. Most of that support comes from members of the patient’s family, mainly from women (role as wife or mother). These women themselves require support so that they can be effective and maintain their well-being while caring for the patient with cancer. In view of this, butterfly has initiated this programme to empower women from cancer-affected families to achieve self-sufficiency & sustainability. We help them with monthly financial support; material support for self-employment, and in some cases, constructing new-houses when they are affected by situations like flood.
