The RSS Way: Sewa During the Troubled Times of Pandemic

The present crisis of Corona is serious, but society, governments, administration and our Corona warriors are working with a great sense of urgency to meet this challenge. We will be able to overcome this crisis only through positivity and collective strength. Various organizations and institutions in the society have also started coordinating taking many new initiatives in which thousands of people are participating displaying great spirit of service. Like the first wave of Corona, in the second wave also, the swayamsevaks (volunteers) of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh are engaged in the work of providing assistance to the affected families and the needy through Sewa Bharati and many other organizations and institutions. During this period of crisis, swayamsevaks have spontaneously started many types of service work according to the needs of the regions where they are working. The swayamsevaks have started many works that include, isolation centers for patients with possibility of Corona and Corona Care Centers for infected patients, providing assistance to government run Covid Care Centers and hospitals, helpline number for assistance, online medical advice, blood donation, plasma donation, helping with funerals, distribution of Ayurvedic kaada and medicines, counseling, oxygen supply and ambulance service, distribution of food ration and masks, help with vaccination campaign, various awareness campaigns and hearse vans to take bodies of the deceased for the last rites. Helpline centers are being run at around 3800 locations across the country by volunteers. Similarly, more than 22 thousand workers are engaged in organising vaccination camps, providing assistance and running awareness campaigns at more than 7500 places. Isolation centers are being operated at 287 locations across the country, with around 9800 beds. Along with this, Covid Care Centers are also being run in 118 cities where 7476 beds have been provided, out of which 2285 beds are with oxygen facility. There are more than 5100 swayamsevaks working in these centers. Apart from these, the swayamsevaks are also helping to run the government administered Covid Care Centers.
