Yogoda Satsanga Society of India (YSS) is a spiritual and a charitable organization. “To serve mankind as one’s larger Self” is one of the Aims and Ideals of YSS. In fact, our beloved Gurudeva, Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda, started his worldwide work with a small school for boys.
The charitable activities of YSS include: medical care, like hospitals, clinics, and medical camps; educational activities, like running educational institutions, coaching centres, and scholarship schemes; help to orphanages and leprosy colonies; and providing emergency relief to those afflicted by natural and other disasters.
YSS Noida Ashram has been engaged in both charitable activities and relief work over the last few years. Offering educational support and medical care at no cost, the ashram runs a Free Coaching Centre and a Free Dispensary on its premises for the last few years. Hundreds of patients and young students from the nearby slum areas and Khoda village utilise the services of these charitable centres being run with the aid of volunteers — qualified and experienced doctors and teachers.
Medical Activities at YSS Noida Ashram
Although only partially built, the Noida Ashram had started its spiritual activities in 2010. A little later, the ashram was able to start its charitable work. A temporary structure with a few rooms was partially converted into a charitable clinic. The covered verandah was used as a waiting area for patients. Two rooms were modified into doctors’ chambers and for disbursing medicines. Allopathic doctors at the Free Dispensary now include General Practitioners, Gynecologists and Pediatricians. There is also a Homeopathic doctor. Most of them are devotees working on a voluntary basis. Consultations with doctors, medicines, and routine tests are totally free. Creating patient awareness about the importance of sanitation and hygiene to maintain good health form an integral part of the ashram's work. This includes creating awareness of and help in pursuing family planning measures. Chronic patients are helped on a long-term basis. Efforts are also made to assist patients with serious conditions by referring them to other suitable charitable organizations. The clinic is a boon for economically weaker sections of society, living in and around Sector 62, Noida and the neighbouring areas of Ghaziabad, like the Khoda village and the Khoda colony. On an average, about 30 patients visit the clinic every day. The clinic is open in the mornings on all weekdays.
