Shanti Avedna Sadan, Loutolim - Goa

Did you know that Goa has Free Hospital for terminally ill Cancer patients?
As for me, I was not aware of, only found out recently.

I am just told that one of my friends’ uncle was here some years ago and that they found the hospital good, clean and tidy.

Talking high about the hospice, young Jude of Cansaulim who died recently and was also an inmate here said ‘I wish I was here long before’

28 years old, Goa’s first Free Hospice Shanti Avedna Sadan is now been extended with  extra wards - 30 more beds.
