This is truly making a difference. I’m really glad that Sri Ramakrishna Mission provides so much help for the people in need. Very happy to see that everyone’s working together to help fight poverty. I really wish I was there in India too and I love doing social work. Providing so many services it just amazing. Really appreciate the Gurus who are doing so much to help the community. Namaste:)

Excellent works as usual by members of Ramakrishna Math & Mission.

May god give vision to many of us to help this organisation in some way or another to continue such works.
