Team Members

Our team members (TMs) are senior level volunteers who bring their expertise and experience as advisors to St. Judes. Their dedication and commitment to helping the cancer affected children has helped us keep our administrative costs low.

We work on the principle “Jobs to be done”. We divide the work in small teams of volunteers and support staff, and focus on the tasks to be carried out.

Our central teams work on the broad areas that relate to every St. Judes centre while our city teams undertake the responsibility of setting up a centre and oversee its efficient functioning. These team members then build a team and recruit support staff whose commitment and vision is in line with us, thus ensuring the seamless replication of the St. Jude model across India.

St. Judes is fortunate to have also had the following valued friends, supporters and advisors over the years.
Dr. Ajanta Narvekar | Ambalika Banerji | Dara Mehta | D Jacinta Rao | Hemant Bakshi | Ireena Vittal | Kedar Lele | Neeru Saluja | Praneeta Diwanji | Ritu Uberoi | Roshini Bakshi | Sanjib Bezbaroa | Tej Sahni | Vidya Upalekar | Vivek Pandit | Janaki Banerjee | MS Shabbir | M Abdul Haq

Our dedicated staff is the backbone of St. Jude and teamwork is what makes it possible for us to care for each child and family with equal attention.
Each centre has a team that works to guarantee smooth daily routines.
Heading the centre, is the centre manager who is supported by a centre officer, teachers, and an activity coordinator for mothers and fathers. Additionally, there are housekeeping staff who ensure our centres are spotlessly clean, and van drivers who are responsible for getting families to and from the hospital for treatments. Trained counselors are available to guide and support our young patients and their parents..
