A simple smile: JKP's Christmas present to poor patients of Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat Hospitals

Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat Christmas Charity Event


We already got to see some glimpses of the sumptuous Christmas feast enjoyed by the poor villagers at Bhakti Dham, Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj's ashram in Mangarh; furthermore there was a Christmas money distribution program at the Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat hospital. With the blessings of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj, poor patients got the gift of a smile this Christmas. Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj attests that physical health, and having access to proper nutrition and care is of utter importance because one needs a healthy body to do proper devotion to God.

Uttar Pradesh is India's largest state and sadly, also one of its poorest. Despite recent signs of progress, UP still faces significant challenges in reducing poverty in its various economic and non-economic dimensions and improving security and well-being for all citizens. The poor are a heterogeneous group: they are deprived not only in material terms, but also have low human development, and live in an uncertain and sometimes threatening environment. Lower caste individuals and women face particular difficulties. Poverty is caused by low levels of assets (private, public goods and services, and social capital) coupled with low and uncertain returns. Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat is having an measurable impact on the situation by providing free, state-of-the-art medical care and education for millions of impoverished populations who live in the large catchment radii of the JKP Hospitals in Barsana and Mangarh, and through regular medical camps and mother and child welfare schemes and via JKP Education. Furthermore, a major component of all the religious festivals of Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat is to bring some happiness  into the lives of the disadvantaged through food and money distribution events. Here are some scenes from similar events in the past.

JKP Hospitals facebook page has just shared some glimpses of the Christmas money distribution. Check out, and like, their page for many more pictures.
