People in the rest of the world have realized the sufferings of citizens in Nepal. Many relief operations have been launched for their help. The relief material is being provided through many nations. By now, it has reached in surplus that Nepal shall not feel deficiency for next 2-3 years. But still the supply has not been made available directly at certain zones of shortcomings because it is being stored in safe go-downs.
Thus people are extending help but they are not expressing sympathy as being exhibited through the volunteers of Dera Sacha Sauda. The citizens of Nepal have acknowledged this concept with gratitude because His Holiness Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan, personally went to Nepal form 1st to 9th May 2015.

Dera Sacha Sauda is helping the earthquake victims for which Nepalese government thanks the revered Guru ji. The two mobile hospitals (Farishta and Nanha Farishta), which are there to provide the medical facility and aid to the earthquake victims, are very unique hospitals. I’ve seen such hospitals for the first time which travel to the patients themselves. Sincere thanks to the volunteers of Shah Satnam Ji Green-S-welfare force Wing and the revered Guru ji.
