UK-based Khalsa Aid International is working with a local gurdwara to provide three hot meals a day to some 3,000 victims of the massive flood that have ravaged in Kerala, India.
The Khalsa Aid team is working with local volunteers from Gurdwara Shri Guru Singh Sabha Kochi, Kerala, to prepare the meals for the flood victoms. They have set up base at a school located on a higher ground as most areas were affected by the flooding.
The gurdwara’s ready facilities to do mass cooking, as is common with most Sikh places of worship, allows the volunteers to kick-start immediately the efforts to provide hot meals to the victims.
Even as the water level is receding in many parts, death toll in Kerala since August 9 has reached 196, according to an Indian newspaper report today (19 Aug 2018).
