The free dispensary at Sri Ramakrishna Math, Mylapore closed down during the second week of June. A few weeks later, arrangements were made to keep the dispensary open just to distribute medicines to the patients who needed them on a regular basis.
A staff, who spoke on behalf of Swami Dharmistanandaji, the manager of the dispensary, says, “We hope to open the dispensary after Aug 15 and we are making arrangements for the same. Till then, any patient who drops in is being directed to the fever clinics run by the corporation or to government hospitals”.
Those who need medicines can drop into the dispensary between 8 and 11 a.m. From Mon-Sat. At 31, R. K. Mutt Road, Mylapore. Ph: 24621110.
