In 1928, Sri Ramkrishna Math, Chennai, undertook fire relief work in a slum at Mylapore. Later, this place developed into a colony called Ramakrishnapuram. The Math continues its services here by maintaining a prayer hall where, in addition to religious services, coaching classes are held for poor school children. They are taught devotional songs. They also learn about the lives of great men and women. Donations for Ramakrishnapuram Colony can be done here.
