Narayan Seva Sansthan (NSS) has been making humanitarian efforts for people in India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Ukraine, the UK, and the US. It is on a mission to bring the differently-abled to mainstream society by empowering them physically, socially, and economically.

For over 35 years, NSS has operated over four lakh patients and has provided them full socio-economic support by availing the best of medical services, medicines, and technologies free of cost.

“We realised that the pandemic has caused a huge problem for migrants, differently-abled, and more. We conducted multiple campaigns like the Sathihathbadhana and the Ghar Ghar Bhojan campaigns,” says Prashant Agarwal, President of NSS.

Sathihathbadhana was started during the second wave of the pandemic to offered a free-of-cost ambulance facility, a home sanitisation facility for COVID-19 recoveries, and free oxygen for the needy in Udaipur.

“We also gave away medicines, free-of-cost, to people who are COVID-19 positive and would be venturing out of the house to buy their medications. We also created ‘Corona Medicine Kits’, which were distributed medicines to those who tested COVID-19 positive and had prescriptions,” he adds. These kits have been distributed to more than 1.5 lakh people.

The NSS ‘Corona Medicine Kit’ has medicines such as Paracetamol, Doxy, Zinc with Azithromycin, Ivermectin, D3 60 K with multivitamin tablets.

These kits are distributed at the doorstep with free home delivery. The patient can call a toll free number 9649499999 to avail these kits.

Under the GharGharBhojan campaign, NSS has offered cooked meals consisting of six chapatis, rice, one green vegetable, dal or any other pulse, and salad.
