RAF barracks turned into home for cancer patients

Navi Mumbai: The barracks once housing the paramilitary troops of 102Bn Rapid Action Force (RAF) in Taloja has now become a centre for cancer patients. Around 50 houses have been built in the 10 unused barracks.

The rooms are equipped with beds, a cooking platform with cylinder and air conditioners so that the patient’s family does not feel ‘homeless’ in the city while they are getting their families treated. There is a garden with playing equipment for children too.

RAF 102 Bn Commandant RW Dawa said, “The CRPF has signed an agreement with Tata Cancer Hospital in 2014 to provide medical aid to CRPF men and their families. The bills will be footed by CRPF but the challenge is to house patients and their families coming here for treatment. Hence, the unused barracks have been transformed using CSR funds from banks.”

Two of the houses will be fitted with air-conditioner for those undergoing chemotherapy. There is enough space for recreation besides garden and playing equipments with children.

A patient from Madhya Pradesh, Ram Swarup, said, “I have been staying here for the last four months and have been travelling to Tata Cancer Hospital in Parel. The personnel here help us in providing all facilities. My son is with the CRPF.”
