The Sikh community are quite famous for their compassionate nature. This can’t be taught to anybody, empathy is something that comes from the within. Khalsa Aid International is a UK based non-profit relief aid and organisation, which has time and again came to help in times of such disasters. They prove that there is no deed virtuous or bigger than charity. In Kerala’s tough times, they have shown a boon of light and have become their guardian angel.

 

Twitter has been all praises and very encouraging for them. They have been called ‘Legends’ by the twitterati.

 

With a little bit of help from the Gurudwara Singh Sabha, Thevara, these volunteers have also organised langar for all those affected by the floods. They have fed over 8000 people now.

 

Not just that, they’ve also set up relief camps where food and shelter is being provided to more than 3000 people. They have proved to be life savers at this grave situation.

 

The Asia Pacific managing director of Khalsa Aid told Indian Express, “Our team is currently at Assisi Vidyaniketan Public School, Perumpilly in Kochi and serving langar to 3,000 people. We have adopted this camp. More volunteers will reach there soon.” Also, one of the volunteers told that they have been trying to set up relief collection centres in Punjab in order to provide the day to day essential items to all the sufferers such as mosquito nets, sanitary pads, slippers, soaps, tarpaulin sheets and knives.
