In Sant Nirankari Mission, devotees have always expressed their devotion to God by loving His creation – the human beings. Therefore, they always come forward with great enthusiasm to serve humanity. Guided by this spirit, the Sant Nirankari Charitable Foundation has been making an outstanding contribution towards social welfare through blood donation, tree plantation and cleanliness drives etc., not only in India but abroad also for the past several years.
The Foundation stepped up its contribution towards cleanliness when the Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi launched the ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan from October 2, 2014. On that day all the branches of the Mission participated in the campaign.
In 2015, the Hon’ble Railway Minister Shri Suresh Prabhu wrote to Baba Hardev Singh Ji Maharaj, requesting for the participation of the Mission’s volunteers in the ‘Swacch Rail – Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.’ Baba Ji acceded to the request gladly and with his benign blessings, from October 2, 2015, the Foundation carried out a special cleanliness drive at 46 main Railway Stations across the country for one year.
