The city of Sri Mayapur is expanding with its number of residents and visitors increasing every passing year. Owing to this, a brand new multispecialty hospital project has been initiated to provide health care at Sri Mayapur.
On November 12th, a ground breaking ceremony for the hospital took place which was graced by Jayapataka Swami, Hridaya Chaitanya Das, Bhakti Purushottam Swami, Bhakti Nityananda Swami and other senior Vaishnavas.
Nanda Suta das, Kirtan Priya Krishna das and Prana Gauranga das are in charge of making the hospital a reality by not only overseeing the project but by contributing financially towards it. They are committed to see the hospital as an important endeavor in assisting people in Navadwip dham. Jayapataka swami said that Srila Prabhupada had instructed that no one within the ten mile radius of the ISKCON Mayapur campus go hungry and that he was concerned about the needy in Navadwip Dham. The hospital, he said, would be an extension of this instruction. He also said that Srila Prabhupada envisioned Mayapur to be a city of 50,000 people and as part of the infrastructure planning for a spiritual township, a health care facility is an important feature to be incorporated.
Villages in India haven't been able to get good access to first class medical care. The Mayapur Community Hospital would be a great feat in this regard and would be certainly appreciated by the Government as a valuable contribution. Kirtan Priya Krishna Das and others are hoping that devotees who are Medical professionals would take this opportunity and come to render their services at the hospital.
They expect the hospital to be completed in two years from the beginning of the construction. The 30 bedded hospital will be equipped with an emergency unit and will have a 4 bedded I.C.U (Intensive Care Unit). All the devotees assembled prayed for the blessings of Sri Krishna and Srila Prabhupada in making the endeavor a successful one.[ hospital ] [ healthcare ] [ Mayapur ]
