Shri Ramakrishna Ashrama, Rajkot

Welfare : Relief Activities


Gujarat had the misfortune of witnessing many disasters both natural and man-made. Shri Ramakrishna Ashrama, Rajkot has tried to meet these challenges in its own humble way by conducting various types of relief and rehabilitation activities during drought, flood, cyclone, earthquake and other natural disasters.  In outer form they appear to be a kind of social service, but in reality they form a part of spiritual practices of the Ramakrishna order which is service to man as service to God. Since 1927, the Ashrama has been conducting, either independently or with the assistance of the Headquarters, relief and rehabilitation operations in different parts of the Gujarat State. Starting with the massive Vadodara Flood Relief and Rehabilitation Work in 1927, which covered 120 villages and involved the building of 920 houses, the Ashrama has also conducted more than 34 major relief and rehabilitation operations.
