Clothing distribution is another major undertaking of the Ashram. Approximately 1/2 ton of clothes every month is distributed to the needy. Clothing is picked up from the community and distributed at the Ashram. Over the years the people from far wide, way beyond Welbedacht from as far Umlazi, Marianhill and beyond. In recent years the Ashram has refocused its clothing distribution for active and regular participants of the Ashram's programs. This refocusing has encouraged many poor and needy people to become members of the Ashrams programs. Parents and children, in fact the Ashram is seeing a growth in family participation. The Ashram provides a pick service for clothing.

Besides clothing, the Ashram also distributes household items to the poor and needy. Again, people that are part of the Ashram's programs get first preference. The Ashram is also part of network of community groups that use the Ashram as distribution point for their services. The Winter Warmth blanket distribution is one of the many programs that is delivered by other community based organisations. 

Clothing that is given to the poor has to be off a good quality before distribution. Clothes received by the Ashram is sorted and only clothes that meet a certain quality standard is given away.

He's is well known for his good qualities. Every year he gives food parcels to other families. Swamiji doesn't choose any race or the colour of your skin he just love you. Swami is a friend, father, brother and an icon to us. Truly God blessed us with a knid hearted Guru. We all can't wait to be at Sunday so we can see his happy face. Children and adult recieve money at the end of the month. We all show gratitude towards him. The Ashram has more than 500 people coming every Sunday. donors come to the Ashram to offer whatever they have just because of Swamiji. May the good lord bless him"
