gesture

NEW DELHINEW DELHINEW DELHINEW DELHINEW, JAN. 28.JAN. 28JAN. Sir Ganga Ram Hospital is working in collaboration with Isha Foundation, an international public service organisation founded by Sadguru Jaggi Vasudev, to reach out to those direly in need in the tsunami-hit area of South India.

As part of its relief and rehabilitation efforts, Isha Foundation has undertaken to provide shelter for the victims of the disaster and is building houses which are not only fire and cyclone-proof but also tsunami-proof.

The building designed "in house'' can be built in 24 hours at a cost of Rs. 80,000 per house. "It will help the people stay near the sea where their livelihood is. We have to understand that people cannot be just shifted out of areas where they have been living for generations. These indigenously developed structures will come in handy,'' explained Sadguru Vasudev.

Sir Ganga Ram Hospital will offer aid to build 20 such houses and the contribution has come from the consultants, staff and the hospital administration.
