Sawan Kirpal Ruhani Mission partners with Delhi govt, converts its facility into covid care center

To deal with the worsening Covid situation the Delhi government reached out to the United Nations’ non-government organizations (NGOs) to partner with them in providing assistance to those desperately in need of relief. Sawan Kirpal Ruhani Mission/Science of Spirituality responded immediately, offering to turn its Darshan Dham conference facility, located in Burari, New Delhi, India into a Covid Care Center. The facility will house 1000 beds with access to oxygen, doctors’ offices, sanitary amenities, kitchen facilities, and parking areas.

Sawan Kirpal Ruhani Mission/Science of Spirituality (SKRM/SOS) is a worldwide spiritual organization, dedicated to transforming lives through meditation under the guidance of Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj. The organization’s contributions will help provide medical care to those in need, regardless of race or creed.

The health minister of Delhi, Satyendar Jain, along with other senior officials, toured Darshan Dham, working with the SKRM leadership to plan the conversion. Delhi government agencies together with hundreds of volunteers from Sawan Kirpal Ruhani Mission are working round the clock to complete the many tasks required to get the new Covid Care Center operational as quickly as possible.

In keeping with the organization’s dedication to service, over the past year, volunteers throughout the 300-plus centers across India have been working tirelessly, distributing essential supplies and food boxes to the homeless and needy. As Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj says: “True selfless service encompasses helping more than our own physical family; it includes all humanity.”

‘Expect 5.5 lakh Covid cases in Delhi by July 31’

New Delhi: Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has said that by the July end, the total number of COVID-19 cases in the national capital will mount to over 5.5 lakh and 80,000 beds would be required for those infected.

The remarks came a day after Lt. Governor Anil Baijal issued an order striking down key announcements made by the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal-led government to reserve beds in private and Delhi government hospitals for city residents.

“Till June 15, there will be 44,000 COVID-19 cases and we would need 6,600 beds.

“We would hit one lakh cases and would require 15,000 beds by June 30.

“Till July 15, the cases would mount to 2.5 lakh and we would require 33,000 beds and till July 31, there will be 5.5 cases and we would need 80,000 beds,” Sisodia told reporters.

The Deputy Chief Minister said that if the cases keep doubling in every 12-13 days in the coming days, there will be shortage of beds and Delhiites will bear the brunt.

“This is the reason the Delhi cabinet had decided to reserve the beds only for the city residents but it was overturned by the L-G. Now, who will take the responsibility if the cases keep on increasing and the beds are full?” he asked.

Sisodia and State Health Minister Satyendar Jain spoke to the media after meeting Lt Governor Anil Baijal’s residence ahead of an all-party meeting at 3 p.m.on the issue.

The Lt Governor, who is also the Chairman of Delhi Disaster Management Authority, had in his order on Monday said that “treatment should not be denied to any patient on grounds of being a non-resident”.

“The Delhi High Court in a writ petition after examining constitutional provisions in details, especially Article 14 and 21, has held that denying patients medical treatment on ground of not being resident of NCT of Delhi is impermissible,” the order stated.
