Sewa Ashram is a rehabilitation center for the destitute and a community of the poor in northern India. “Sewa” is a Hindi word which means ‘the practice of selfless service’; “Ashram” means ‘spiritual community’.

Based on compassion and focused on restoring dignity while giving love and health care, patients admitted to Sewa Ashram contribute to the daily life of the community by helping to care for each other. Additionally, recovered patients are encouraged to participate in vocational programs.

Sewa Ashram’s goal is to provide the sick, injured and abandoned homeless of Delhi with life-saving medical treatment in an environment of brotherhood and learning.
