Doing the best it can to help make the world a better and safer place, the members of Gurudwara Bangla Sahib have opened a ‘no profit no loss’ dispensary at the premises of the Gurudwara.
As the Gurudwara continues to provide free food aka langar to lakhs of people now it has taken one more step forward and is not doing medical seva by opening ‘Bala Pritam Dawakhana’ and providing medicines to the needy.
Gyani Ranjeet Singh, Head Granthi of Gurudwara Bangla Sahib told ANI, “During the COVID-19 pandemic, our sevaks had reached out to the needy with food. Eventually, we realised that people not only need food but medicines as well.”
Singh said, that the Head of the Gurudwara Sikh Management Committee, Manjit Singh Sirsa decided to open ‘Bala Pritam Dawakhana’ in the premises. In this dispensary, we are offering medicines at no profit no loss.
The medicines will be available at a cheaper cost than that available in the medical stores. Also, as many as 1 lakh people took advantage of the service on the first day.
The dispensary is functional between 10 am to 8 pm but the Gurudwara authorities are planning to extend the timing.
