"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

JSS strives to provide ethical and equitos treatment to TB patients in Bilaspur. It is widely seen in the district that the prescriptions of the government TB programme are not customized to the state of the patient. The annual financial support required for medications is Rs. 18,00,000





JSS has already secured funding of around Rs. 4 lakhs from SRTT for 3 years, leaving an unmet need of Rs. 14 Lakhs. Of the remaining, A.I.D Duke has approved $3k this year and plans to increase it by $1-2k Whatever remains then has to be taken care of by other smaller donations they receive. Proposal for A.I.D Bay Area Rs 4 lakhs





JSSí goal is to develop capability to successfully treat approx. 600 TB patients a year.
