Aroh-Giving Hope

"Sometimes, real superheroes live in the hearts of small children fighting big battles"

Cancer is the one of the leading causes of death by disease among children.

We at Aroh, do not want the children and their families to fight this battle alone. Founded in 2013, we have embarked on a mission to provide services to children with cancer and their families. We are currently working in Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.

Psycho-Social Support

We conduct monthly classes to give awareness and exposure to the children on various aspects of life. We give school fees and stationery to all the school going kids every year.

Snippets from Aroh’s Journey

Our Presence

We work for children with cancer in the states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. 


"There were many instances when Aroh brought in kids who would have otherwise been abandoned the treatment altogether. I specifically find all the volunteers to be extremely empathetic in their interaction with the parents and positive and friendly with the children. As a doctor, I believe Aroh adds value part with their work to the cancer care of the kids and we, at the hospital, appreciate their work."

Dr.Bharath Rangarajan
Consultant Medical Oncologist, Kovai Medical Center and Hospital, Coimbatore

"I am in the 2nd Standard and I have not been well for a while now and I am hospitalized. All the people from Aroh, conducted games for us today. I enjoyed it so much and I like everyone who came to play with us today."

Child under treatment, Government Hospital, Coimbatore

"I am a school student and I came across Aroh while looking for opportunities to volunteer. I visited many hospitals and children with the staff of Aroh. I saw so many children, some of them were of my age. They were going through many tests and treatments. I learnt so much from this experience. I thank Aroh for showing me another side of life."
