We are a Sikh based charity, but we serve all those in need regardless of race or religion. If you fall into one of the catagories mentioned above, please do get in touch. 
 
So far we have served over 400 individuals and many of them were children under the age of 12. All Food is delivered by a SAF Volunteer and we operate a contactless delivery system for the protection of all involved.

Helping the Forgotten Sikhs Across India

On March 24th, 2020 the Indian government announced a nationwide lockdown to help contain the spread of the novel coronavirus. 

This lockdown, while well intended has made it almost impossible for individuals within impoverished communities to maintain a living or to feed their families. Specifically, Sikligar Sikhs, an often forgotten community of people living across India are at great risk of going weeks if not months without sufficient support.

Currently we are doing our best to offer support to over 200 families living in Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, and Hyderabad. All together, we will be delivering 12 tonnes of food  at a cost of $10,000 throughout the next week. Your donations will go directly towards supporting this effort, and helping us prepare for phase two.
