HELPING THOSE IN NEED
Basic Needs Programs
Respect everyone, love everyone, and serve everyone.

Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra organizes charitable social service programs that distribute basic needs to families in low-income neighborhood areas. These programs are inspired by the teachings of Sant Baljit Singh Ji that motivate our volunteers to see and serve God in everyone.
Blanket Distribution 2021
The Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra blanket distribution program is organized during the cold winter months each year. In January and February 2021, our volunteers visited the nearby villages, slum areas, and brick kilns. We found many people living in miserable conditions due to the cold weather. Our volunteers immediately approached the local administration and offered help.
In coordination with the local administration, Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra donated and distributed 11,854 blankets. The families in need were very happy and grateful to receive the blankets.
The local administration attended some of these charitable events and sent letters of appreciation after the events. The heads of the villages and other villagers who were present also remarked on the good quality of the blankets.
This office is highly satisfied with Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra (Regd.) branch Kharar for providing the 134 blankets to the people in need in the slum area on January 3, 2021, and for strictly following the COVID-19 guidelines issued by the central government and state government from time to time.
The quality and quantity of material provided was par excellence and this office is highly obliged to Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra, Nawan Nagar’s service during the COVID-19 pandemic.

I, the Municipal Councillor of Nagar Council Mahilpur, heartily thank Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra (Regd.) Nawan Nagar, PO Nanakpur, Distt. Panchkula, Haryana for the great efforts and services towards the people in need in society. The organization donated blankets to 50 people of Mahilpur and 15 people of Bhagonre road, Mahilpur. It is really a great service provided by the charitable society of Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra Nawan Nagar. I really appreciate you and your holy charitable society for the precious service to the weaker section of society. May this holy organization run by Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra succeed in future with grace of God.

These charitable activities adhered strictly to the Covid-19 guidelines issued by the local, state and central bodies. At each of these charitable activities, our volunteers maintained physical distancing, and wore masks and gloves.
Our volunteers visited each charity location a few days in advance to plan where to put the tables, mark the circles, and place the banners. On the day of the event, some of our volunteers assembled two tables in the front. The tables were covered with white sheets. Then all the blankets were placed on one table.
Meanwhile, another team of our volunteers marked white circles on the ground. The circles were at least 2 meters apart. After the circles were marked, the beneficiaries who gathered to receive the blankets were invited to sit or stand within the white circles.
The beneficiaries were then asked to come to the front one at a time. As each beneficiary approached, one volunteer sanitized their hands as another volunteer took a blanket from the pile on the first table and placed it onto the second table for the beneficiary. In this way, each blanket could not accidentally come into contact with multiple beneficiaries, thereby avoiding any risk of cross contamination.
Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra Nawan Nagar, Haryana distributed 100 blankets on January 7, 2021 in Harangaon to save the people in need from the cold. It is a really appreciable act. The activity was organized according to the Covid-19 guidelines.
We are thankful to the organization on behalf of the village council. We expect that Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra will organize such charitable activities in the future.

Sewing machines for widows and wheelchairs for handicapped
In September 2020, the Maharashtra government issued a circular that paved the way for charitable organizations to help farmers’ widows. A month later, in October 2020, the deputy commissioners of Nandurbar and Dhulia invited Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra to a meeting to discuss assistance for the widows. The deputy commissioners asked us to help them by donating sewing machines and spray pumps for the crops in the fields.
Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra donated 56 sewing machines with stands and 25 battery spray pumps to the widows in Dhule and Nandurbar. The deputy commissioners in attendance acknowledged the event with a letter of appreciation.
As part of the society, you accepted your responsibility and came forward to help farming families. By providing help to the farming families you have presented an example of charity to the society. Your action will inspire others to serve society. Thank you for your cooperation in the spirit of bringing happiness to the life of others. We hope that you will also cooperate in other activities of the district.

Each year, the Himachal Pradesh government announces targets for its Integrated Rural Development Program (IRDP). In 2021, Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra was invited to offer assistance to three villages: Kot, Gah, and Koshariyan. These villages are in very remote areas of Himachal Pradesh where there is no road access.
Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra participated in the program by donating wheelchairs to handicapped persons and 9 sewing machines with stands to widows in the three aforementioned villages. Our volunteers arranged the donations and transported them to the villages by boat across the Gobind Sagar Lake. The heads of the villages officiated at the event.

In 2021, Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra continued to organize fire relief charitable activities whilst adhering to the Covid-19 guidelines issued by the local, state and central bodies.

Our organization, Manav Seva Tirth works for the care and rehabilitation of homeless psychiatric patients roaming in the streets. We give them proper medical treatment.
We had made a request to Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra to help us by giving one month’s ration supplies and 65 blankets (market price Rs.82,000).
