Please Help Old, Disabled, Mentally ill Destitutes at Sewadham, Ujjain

Ever since 1986, Sewadham Ashram, established by Sudhir Bhai Goyal, has been a home for people who were abandoned by their families or their individual societies at large.

Born in Indore Madhya Pradesh on 19th August 1957 to a well known family of Ujjain, Sudhir Bhai Goyal was influenced by the teachings of Swami Vivekananda and Mahatma Gandhi very early in life. He has been involved in social service since 1970 (at the age of 13) when he started a school at village Ajnoti. The sufferings of a mentally ill uncle, a mentally unsound grandmother, pathetic condition of one of his friend’s disabled brother and sight of a freedom fighter begging on streets urged him to do something for these needy people.

He wanted to become a doctor. Meeting with Acharya Vinoba Bhave in 1976 changed all that. In which Acharya Vinoba Bhave told him that the soul of India was in its villages and in fact true service to humanity lay in serving in the villages.

He established Sewadham Ashram in 1989 to provide a lifetime shelter to dying and destitute people with immense love, care and compassion. He left no stone unturned in his efforts to provide food, shelter, education and rehabilitation to those in need following a five-point doctrine of Sewa, Shiksha, Swasthya, Swavlambanand, Sadbhav with & Environment Protection.

In almost last three decades and with humble beginning of serving one resident in 1989, Sewadham has grown considerably and is serving 500+ residents today .Sudhir Bhai stays with his family within the ashram premises dedicated and devoted to providing the best of services to inmates and he sees God in their smiling faces.

Men, women and children who had been abandoned in a helpless condition in bus, railway stations, roads and hospitals have all found loving care and attention in Sewadham. Since its inception, more than 5000 people irrespective of caste, creed and religion, suffering from chronic or terminal diseases like cancer, HIV, AIDS, TB, mental illnesses, physical handicaps and dying and destitute people have benefitted from Sewadham. That’s not all; nearly 2000 people were rehabilitated and the last rites of more than 1500 people were carried out according to their individual religious belief systems.

Sudhir Bhai Goyal has a vision that in 2018 Sewadham Ashram should provide shelter & rehabilitation, food, medical aid, education to special children, health & hygiene cloths, proper care and maintenance with love, care and compassion to 1000 unfortunate souls who are living non-existent life and abandoned, neglected by our society.

77 year old suffering mother neglected by her daughter in-law.... she came to Sewadham Ashram with her son and requested for lifetime shelter. And said I will stay in the Ashram till my last breath & will not go back home.... she also requested not to inform even her 2 sons even on her death ... Sewadham Ashram is serving abandoned old age people coming from across the country who are neglected by their own family and society ...

The mentally retarded girl was aged 12 years when she was adopted by Sewadham on recommendation of Indore Collector. She was found wandering on streets in helpless homeless destitute condition.  The girl recovered very well at Sewadham under proper care, health care, nutritious food, in healthy natural surroundings.  She became caretaker of one of the kids ward. Currently she is 23 years old. During a disabled marriage meet at Sewadham a well established family liked her and gave marriage proposal for their divyang son.  She accepted the same and her godfather (धर्म पिता) and founder Sudhir Bhai Goyal arranged her marriage with lot of enthusiasm, joy and cheer at Sewadham.  Her marriage is true example of Rehabilitation in the mainstream of the society.  We all wish her happy married life ... !
