This service is a part of a welfare initiative by Lucknow's Yahiyaganj Gurudwara.
A sterling example of selfless service, Dr. Amarjot Singh has provided free teleconsultation to over 300 patients in Lucknow, as the city residents struggled through the second wave of the COVID pandemic. As a part of a welfare initiative by Lucknow's Yahiyaganj Gurudwara, the medical professional is assuring safe COVID journeys for all these individuals, helping them to climb up the staircase of recovery. Dr. Amarjot is an assistant professor at RML Hospital in Lucknow.
Welfare scheme for home-isolated patients to continue till the pandemic subsides
During these extraordinary circumstances, it is his father's spirit of compassionate service, that motivated Dr. Amarjot to take up this noble cause. His father, Dr. Gurdeep Singh, is the president of Yahiyaganj Gurudwara and the scheme was formalised with help of the organisation's secretary. Besides his usual duty, he has shouldered his moral responsibilities of supporting society, through this program. When he receives a call, the doctor carefully listens to all problems and symptoms and examines the reports. Followed by this, he advises the patient about medications, to make sure that the sick recovers at the home itself.
Reportedly, the doctor has given his number, 9621111151, where COVID positive patients can contact and seek the needed help. In addition to the teleconsultation, reports state that there are facilities for free provisioning of medicines as well. It has been stated that the scheme will continue to be in action till the pandemic subsides.
Umpteen social benefit schemes by Gurudwaras across the city
From 'oxygen langar' and free hearse services to food for all, gurudwara associations across the city have been involved in a range of welfare works. Not only does this benefit the needy but it also acts as a catalyst to motivate others to be a part of similar aid interventions. Given the problems ushered by the pandemic, Yahiyaganj Gurudwara's measure comes at a much-needed time.
