More recently, the Sangh has undertaken a ‘Cancer Patient Accommodation Project’ for cancer patients who come to Mumbai seeking treatment. Funds for the project are raised both on the local and national levels and there have been significant contributions by members. BGES chairman DhruvPradhan and joint secretary RohitPradhan recently visited Dehradun to promote the objective of the Sangh and the Cancer Patient Accommodation Project. People come to Mumbai from all over the country for treatment of cancer and they have to wait for weeks and months for an appointment. The treatment period takes even longer. Moreover, Mumbai is a very expensive city and most patients and their families cannot afford hotel and guesthouse charges. Keeping this in mind, BGES members initially hosted cancer patients at their own residences and even helped them financially. As many cancer patients do not survive, Sangh members also made arrangements to send their mortal remains home by air.
