KBF Care Home

Back in 2015 KBF in India opened a small hospice dedicated to caring for the homeless, most vulnerable residents of Kolkata. The aim was to provide medical attention and care and allow those who approach the end of their lives to die in dignity. 

Every person received a bed or mattress, good food, and dedicated staff to care for them. Over the past years, KBF staff looked respectful after many passed away in peace.

What surprised us and filled us with joy was that many very sick patients recovered. Our first patient, a man with flesh-eating wounds, recovered and can now work and provide for himself. He still visits the KBF project regularly because he has many good friends here. 

Because of the nature of the project’s over the past years, with many patients choosing to stay on after they have recovered, KBF decided to stop calling it the hospice, and instead, we now refer to it as CARE HOME.

KBF take care of around twenty-five patients, with a full-time nurse and a part-time doctor and physio.

Until 2022, the project had been regularly moved from one rented property to another. However, thanks to the amazing generosity of our supporters, we are pleased to announce that we now have a new completed KBF care home!.

Please see below a selection of photos, showing our wonderful new facility…

Again, a big THANK YOU to all our supporters for your amazing generosity that has enabled the home to be built !!
