Building Brick by Brick

Encouraged and inspired by Late Swami Ranganathananda the XIII President of the Ramakrishna Math and Mission (who was then President, Delhi Math), a group of young ladies, some of them doctors, started free medical service to the poor in Kherwadi, Mumbai, from 1968 to 1975. In 1974, they obtained land on lease from MHADA and constructed the building in Pratiksha Nagar, Sion, Mumbai, which was inaugurated by Late Swami Vireshwarananda, the X President of the Math, in 1976.
