Pandemic or protest, Sikhs always provide needy with bread

United Sikh has been distributing essentials, daily from the past two months with the help of volunteers across Bangalore since the pandemic broke here. Be it a natural disaster, such as the Kerala floods, pandemic, or protests ÔÇô against the Citizenship Act in India, or racism in the United States, the Sikh community has always been at the forefront to help. 

United Sikhs have been working since 1999 and have chapters in 11 countries. As an international organization, United Sikhs reached a major milestone in mid-April feeding more than 1 million across the globe during the coronavirus pandemic.

Mohinderjeet Singh, director of the organization, said that, "We have been providing food to all the migrant workers traveling from Bangalore. Around 4 to 9 trains are leaving Bangalore every day which has approximately 1600, passengers each. We are trying to support all the passengers traveling." ÔÇ£From past one month our special support is for kids and women as we are providing them with special kits that contain milk and food items that can last for two to three days,ÔÇØ he further added. 

All the funds for the service in Bangalore have been raised by Sikhs Sangat's, Local Bangalore community donations, and United Sikhs. "We have also been helped by IITian. Therefore it's a joint effort by all of us," Singh added.
