Delhi: Gurdwara committee hands over donations to fund Covid hospital | Delhi News

NEW DELHI: After Sachkand Hazur Sahib Abchalnagar Gurdwara in Nanded announced recently that it would use 50 years’ worth of donations in gold and cash to build a superspecialty hospital and medical college, the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee followed suit.
On Wednesday, it handed over gold, silver and valuables collected in donations over the last few years for building a new 125-bed Covid-19 hospital in Delhi.
Care centre will become hospital later
DSGMC president Manjinder Singh Sirsa and general secretary Harmeet Singh Kalka said the hospital, which they claim will be completed in record 60 days, will be conducted by Baba Bachan Singhji’s team, with donations in the form of cash and valuables to be put to immediate use to fight the pandemic. The donations, which included silver ornaments, gold jewellery and cash, were laid out on a table before being handed over to the team.
“Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee is working to serve humanity as per the teachings of the Sikh Gurus. Our only motive right now is to save lives and lives are far more valuable than the gold we possess,” said Sirsa. “Each and everyone who contributed, their contribution and feelings are priceless to us. The same way, when we had announced that we were setting up a 400-bed Covid care centre, we did not have a single oxygen concentrator, but, within hours, we received 100 concentrators.”
Kalka says the hospital will be in the name of Guru Harkrishan Sahib and will be converted into a general hospital later. It will have 35 ICU beds, four ICU beds for children and a separate ward for women as well.
Sirsa and Kalka thanked the French government for donating an oxygen generator.
