AIIMS sets up temporary night shelter

NEW DELHI, Dec 21: AIIMS in collaboration with Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) has set up a temporary 40-bed night shelter outside its dental centre, to bring relief to patients and their relatives from the biting cold in the national capital.
This was done to provide night shelters to the patients and their relatives who camp outside the premiere institution in case they fail to get a bed, officials said.
“AIIMS is visited by large number of patients and many camp outside the institution failing to secure a bed.
“We have set up this temporary night shelter. We are planning to come up with some more such temporary night shelters,” AIIMS spokesperson Amit Gupta said.
AIIMS is also building a new 200-bed permanent night shelter that would be ready by 2015, he added. (PTI)
