Care Beyond Cure


End-of-life care for patients is a sensitive yet crucial aspect of care delivery. It entails physical, emotional, social, and spiritual support, not just for the patient but also for the families going through an intensely turbulent experience. MSITEK CSR activities are aimed at alleviating the pain of patients in advanced stages of cancer by facilitating empathetic and palliative care, and a respectful passage through this world.

Towards this, MSITEK has collaborated with Rishikesh-based Ganga Prem Hospice to provide technology systems and support. As part of its CSR initiative MSITEK has modernized the organization’s technology systems and processes, and provides ongoing support and maintenance for its technology infrastructure.
Ganga Prem Hospice is a spiritually-oriented not-for-profit trust situated on the banks of the river Ganga for terminally ill cancer patients. When patients exhaust all treatment options, Ganga Prem Hospice steps in to improve their lives with medical, spiritual and emotional support. The Hospice, believes that death is more than a physical event, and so the care touches every aspect of a patient’s life to make each moment matter in a caring and supportive environment.

Improving quality of life for others

MSITEK CSR focuses on supporting palliative care as there is a huge gap in palliative care availability in India. Even though an estimated 7.2 million people become terminally ill each year, yet less than 4% have access to these services in the country. Over 3.5–6.2% of the population in India becomes poorer every year due to enhanced health expenditure at the end of life, even though evidence suggests palliative care results in reduced healthcare spending.
MSITEK wants to ramp up palliative care in other parts of India. The company also plans to support the education and healthcare needs of underprivileged children of terminally ill patients in association with Ganga Prem Hospice in the next phase of CSR activities.
MSITEK is open to exploring opportunities to collaborate with more organizations engaged in providing palliative care delivery.

Giving back to society

“We are immensely honored to be doing our bit and contributing to the Hospice’s noble cause. We will continue to sponsor and drive many more CSR initiatives.”
