The novel coronavirus is continuing to take its deadly toll on the country. The government and hospitals are bucking up to assure an efficient arrangement of beds, ventilators and other essential facilities for the growing number of coronavirus patients in the nation. Precautions are been taken, states have been put under lockdown to stifle the spread of COVID-19.
In the thick of such hue and cry, Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) has come up with a very thoughtful and generous offer for the ones suffering from coronavirus. They have decided to offer the ‘serai’ inn in Gurudwara Majnu Ka Tila situated on the banks of river Yamuna for setting up quarantine facilities for coronavirus infected patients, reports TOI.
In a letter to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, DSGMC president Manjinder Sirsa wrote that all the 20 rooms in the serai inn of the gurudwara that are equipped with modern facilities, can be used for this purpose. “DSGMC will provide separate rooms for heath staff, ample parking in Gurdwara premises and the safest and secure environment,” he added, reports News 18
Moreover, the gurudwara authorities will also provide free meals (langar) to the patients as well as the medics and extend their help in any matter concerned. In fact, the gurudwaras across the capital will provide langar to those in need affected due to the pandemic.
“The Gurdwara Committee is fully prepared to provide packed food packets to government agencies and other needy institutions. We can give 10 lakh food packets immediately to the government,” Sirsa said, reports The Hindu.
This is certainly a big contribution by DSGMC in India’s fight against coronavirus. Kudos to the gurudwara authorities for their thoughtful and kind gesture! A big thank you.
