During Covid surge, we have seen much humanitarian work all across the country, from delivering free food to vehicle to volunteer service there many things going round the internet. Now Bharat Sevashram Sangha, a Hindu charitable organisation known for its charity work, recently broke its 104-year-old rule for COVID-19 patients, by allowing non veg food.
The organisation was established in 1917 by Swami Pranabanandaji Maharaj, the entry of non-veg food was banned since then.
No non-vegetarian food has ever entered the ashram of the Bharat Sevashram Sangh, which is spread all over India and the world. But for Covid patients’ fish, meat and boiled eggs are now available in the ashram breaking the age old norms.
As protein is essential for people recovering from Covid, that’s why the ashram has now permitted eggs, fish and meat within its premises for COVID-19 patients. According to ashram, it is more important to heal patients currently as oppose to age old religious ideals.
Ashram authorities opened the Covid Care Hospital for coronavirus patients with two floors at Bharat Sevashram Sangha in Garia on May 21. At first 25 beds were allotted but later five more beds were added. Of these, 20 beds have oxygen system while the hospital has four nurses and two doctors available 24 hours for medical supervision. The medical staffs are being assisted by 12 volunteers of the ashram.
