Destitute Gets New Lease on Life

Ashram (15K)

Objectives-Hdr (48K)

“Naam Jappo” and “Help the Needy” is the basic principle of this Institute (Ashram). Its main objective is to look after the homeless, destitute, disabled, blind, orphans, lepers, poor, homeless, aged and other needy people. The patients living in the Ashram are provided food, clothes, medical help and nursing care – all free of cost. The education of hundreds of needy students studying in government schools has also been sponsored.

For many years, the founder of the Charity Dr. Naurang Singh Mangat chose to pedal his bicycle on the dusty and bumpy roads of slum areas in and around Ludhiana city. He used to pick up the homeless sick people from the road sides and take them to the hospital for treatment and pay their expenses. Sometimes he had to even stay in the hospital to look after them.

His determination, sincerity, continuous hard work and unflinching belief to help the needy solicited the public support which ultimately led to establishing and building the institute “Guru Amar Das Apahaj Ashram”. The ground floor of the Ashram is now complete and is equipped with security system and solar power system.  

Dr Mangat  is a former Professor-cum-Scientist of Statistics at Punjab Agricultural University Ludhiana, University of Windsor (Canada) and  Senior Scientist at Morrison Scientific in Calgary (Canada). He is also a former Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society, London.  Besides publishing about 60 research papers in world famous journals, he is a co-author of text book “Elements of Survey Sampling” published by Kluwer Academic Publishers based in Netherlands, London and Boston,  but now owned by Springer-Verlag of Germany.

About 25 homeless, mentally sick, disabled and elderly sick people are living in the Ashram permanently. The number is increasing every month. The time is not far when on completion of the remaining three floors, the institute will be catering to hundreds of disabled and homeless in the future.
