Punjab - We ask sangat to have patience with us when it comes to Punjab because SAF is working in 120 villages of Punjab, it takes a lot to get children updates, photos, reports from schools. We mostly deal with Single mothers, farmer suicide families and other under privileged children.
Arshdeep Singh lives in Punjab and is in 7th grade. Unfortunately, his father passed away in April of 2018 after battling cancer. The people of the village had raised money collectively and spent a total of $6000 CAD on Arshdeep’s dad’s medical costs in hopes that it would help prolong his life and beat the cancer. He was loved dearly not only by his family, but by all of those who knew him and they say he was very hardworking and loving. Arshdeep’s family currently lives in a broken down two bedroom home that belongs to their uncle. The structure of the home is made of mud, so you can probably imagine what the living conditions are like for Arshdeep Singh, his brother and their mother.
