    United Sikhs’ Disaster Relief Aid distributed to 1000 villagers affected by Typhoon in Philippines

    By Parmjit Singh


    Panay Islands, Philippines: According to a newsletter by the United Sikhs, a US based Sikh NGO, it has provided food aid to a 1000 villagers of Panay islands in Philippines. According to United Sikhs: [t]he impact is real, the loss is real and so is the huge task of assisting the people of Philippines to get their life back.

    As per information the United Sikhs team visited 7 different villages in the Antique province of Panay Islands where we were able to provide food aid containing coffee, milk, sugar, milo, cereal, biscuits, toothpaste and sanitizer.

    “The cost so far is over $15,000 and there is lots to be done. The estimated cost for distributing food to surrounding areas is $30,000”, the United Sikhs informs in its newsletter, which further reads as: “Our team leaders Rishiwant Singh and Kiranjit Singh along with Gurpreet Singh of Khalsa Diwan Inc, Manila reported they are humbled by the gratitude and acceptance of the people of Philippines”.

    Rishwant Singh said, “These are the true Sikhs, living in Chardi Kala.”

    The NGO has appealed its supporters to donate for carrying out more humanitarian aid in the Typhoon hit Philippines.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
