Since our childhood, we have been seeing homeless , shelterless and dying destitutes, in and around us, on railway platforms/bus stations, pavements, roads and other public places. Though resigned to their fates, they are very much part of the society belonging to our own species-The Homo sapiens.with filth smeared over their diseased bodies, sometimes having maggots filled stinking sores/wounds on their bodies, each one has a painful story behind the dark, grooved eyes and wrinkeled faces, With no near and dear ones, they are left to lead an almost non-existent life, all alone by themselves.
As fellow human beings, we generally do have a pity for them. Compassion may often lead us to drop them a rupee or two and better still, humanity may force us to give them some food and castaway clothes. So engrossed we are in our own daily mundane chores, that their state doesn’t stir any further feeling within us and we have accepted them as a casual entity in the daily scenario of our society, not bothering any further for this suffering humanity.
As the saying goes, the almighty has one door open for them in the form of Sewadham Ashram – a lifetime shelter home for many of these under privileged persons – where they can lead a life with dignity, till their last breath. Sewadham Ashram is an inter-faith, caring organization that assists and supports such abandoned, helpless shelter less, dying destitute, who are not provided with shelter by anyone else. It is a non-partisan, voluntary organization running exclusively on public support. Sewadham Ashram encourages individuals, corporate and other agencies around the world to actively support and participate in the welfare services being carried on for the suffering humanity. Founded by Sudhir Bhai Goyal, in January 1989, Sewadham Ahsram is situated on a picturesque location in the interior rural belt-adjoining the Gambhir Dam at village Ambodia, block Ghatia on Barnagar Road, about 15 kms away from the ancient holy city of Ujjain and approx. 75 kms away from indore airport. Sudhir Bhai Goyal, embarked on this noble journey of service- a difficult and challenging task- with only resources being – inspirations from the suffering of these fellow begins and 1 acres of land that he donated for this unique and noble mission.
Over the years, due to his relentless and untiring efforts with love, care and compassion, the ashram has blossomed into a lifetime shelter home for more than 350 lesser privileged people which includes old parents (abandoned by their own children) and other young and old disabled; mentally and physically retarded; orphaned children; lepers; paralyses and Polio/Cancer/T.B./HIV/AIDS victims; oppressed and unwed mothers; the victims of natural calamities and other dying destitute.
