27th April 2015
In the wake of Earthquakes in Nepal and the worsening situation,Sukhbir Singh Badal, President, Shiromani Akali Dal, had urged both SGPC [Shiromani GurdwaraParbandhak Committee, Sri Amritsar] and DSGMC [Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee] to step up their relief work in terms of serving Langar and other relief material to the victims in Nepal.
On 27th April, they sent their first instalment of food packets and relief material. Thereafter, SGPC DSGMC have been sending 50,000 food packets relief material and will continue to do so till its needed.
Sikhs, in particular, have been always at the forefront of relief and rescue at the times of disaster and I plead with everyone to contribute in whatever way they can to help our brothers and sisters in Nepal. You may co ordinate with the offices of SGPC and DSGMC for any assistance that you may wish to provide to them. Waheguru will give us strength to help the people of Nepal as best as we can, said Sukhbir Singh Badal.
