Meyyur Rural Unit
A unit of Sri Ramakrishna Math, Chennai since 1986
During Swami Vivekananda’s 150th Birthday Celebration, Meyyur Village, 50 km from Chennai, was adopted by Sri Ramakrishna Math, Chennai.
Two small nearby hamlets – Gurupuram and Vembedu were also included to benefit by these services. These people in the hamlets are away from the mainstream of the society and are very poor with limited job opportunities and mostly illiterate.
To realize the dream of Swami Vivekananda to uplift the people in the villages, Sri Ramakrishna Math, Chennai has been undertaking rural medical service for the past 32 years. As a part of this service, a team of doctors and volunteers visit remote villages to provide essential medical care three days in a week.
What we do?
How we perform?
Women trained in tailoring skills
Students attending free tuition
Elderly women trained to make Agarbathi and Sambarani
Widows receiving new garments twice a year
Women and children attending evening arati
Villagers partaking food daily
In a silent and simpler way, the service is going on, but still more needs to be done.
We hope with the help of more compassionate hearts and helping hands we shall carry out Swami Vivekananda’s work.
We need your help to make Meyyur a ‘model village’.
