 For nearly two decades, UNITED SIKHS has worked tirelessly to uplift the downtrodden and bring hope to communities in distress during natural disasters. We are committed to this mission: "Recognize the Human Race As One." The UNITED SIKHS Disaster Relief Teams have served humanity in Indonesia, New Orleans, Nepal, Japan, Haiti, Bangladesh, Mexico City, Puerto Rico and beyond. 

Partnering with the United Nations, FEMA, and other leading NGOs, the UNITED SIKHS Disaster Relief teams are deployed in especially-vulnerable areas to provide aid and rehabilitation. We identified communities where little to no aid has yet arrived. The most pressing need is to provide families with food, water, and temporary shelter to survive the aftermath and help rebuild their lives.

Together, we have the power and resources to make a difference. And we can’t do it without YOU! Every donation saves a life. Please donate today and become part of the solution.

    United States Chapter: Empowering Women in Need

    On March 14th, our Bay Area team partnered with Narika, an organization founded by immigrant women to serve survivors of domestic violence, single mothers, and women in need. Narika hosted their bi-monthly Food and Essentials Drive-By for their clients with women and children in attendance. We donated school supplies, snacks, personal hygiene items, grocery essentials and gift cards. This effort impacted the lives of over 100 women and children in need. We extend our gratitude to Gurdwara Sahib Fremont for their generous donation towards this initiative.

     

    Kenya Chapter: Medical Sewa in Hospitals 

    UNITED SIKHS' Kenya chapter recently provided medicine and medical supplies to Naari Level 4 Sub-County Hospital in Meru. We also donated medical supplies to Cottolengo Mission Hospital’s center for people with disabilities in Chaaria. The center is currently home to 50 boys who are abandoned by their families, each one with a different disability. The Hospital’s Director, Brother Giam Carlos, appealed to UNITED SIKHS to continue  assisting as it was vital in running and operating the center.

    Project Report 2018-2020

    COVID-19 PANDEMIC GLOBAL RELIEF EFFORTS

    The unprecedented global tragedy of Covid-19 has led to the most expansive relief efforts since the founding of UNITED SIKHS in 1997. It started with a request from the New York Office of Emergency Management in March to deliver over 30,000 meals in New York City as the pandemic cast its dark shadow on this global city. We set up an emergency hotline in North America to serve the needs of the most vulnerable from frontline workers, homeless, elderly, poor and at-risk individuals. 


    We expanded our efforts globally to serve communities from the US to Europe, Australia, Asia and India. Hundreds of volunteers from all walks of life have stepped forward to serve. Generous donors have provided funds and grocery supplies to make our work possible. We are committed to offer basic life affirming needs of countless impacted around the globe by this pandemic. The infographic below represents the scope of these humanitarian efforts.

     

    Covid-19 Relief Metrics

     

    US CENSUS 2020 - GETTING EVERY SIKH COUNTED


    2020 is a landmark year for Sikhs and the Census. After extensive research, demand and lobbying over the past decade by our legal teams; the Census Bureau has made considerable updates to the race and ethnicity code list. For the first time in United States history the US Census included “Sikh” as a population group within the Asian racial category. With this opportunity to be heard, Sikhs living in the United States now have an opportunity to advocate for their own communities by simply being counted.

     

    SAVE AFGHAN MINORITIES CAMPAIGN

    The safety and security of the Afghan Sikhs and Hindu families are paramount amidst terrorist attacks. The Department of State and the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom have documented systemic discrimination against Sikhs and Hindus in Afghanistan. UNITED SIKHS has been advocating for and serving Afghan minorities for many years. 


    UNITED SIKHS has been providing the following critical services:

    Relocation of families to safe areas.
    Families of those lost and injured have been provided assistance. 
    Avenues for Immigration documentation to allow for resettlement being pursued and the necessary resources to obtain such documentation have been put in place. 
    Permanent migration to India and Canada. Housing and job assistance.

     

    PROJECT RAAHAT: PUNJAB FLOOD RELIEF 

    In August 2019, following heavy rains and the release of 

    excess water from the Bhakra Dam, the Sutlej River and its 

    tributaries had inundated villages in several areas of Punjab 

    (Northwest India), causing extensive damage to crops, 

    especially paddy, and homes in low-lying areas. The floods 

    said to be the worst since 1988 led to cumulative loss estimated at Rs 1,219.23 crore (12 Billion USD) by government officials.

    UNITED SIKHS offered the following relief services in the next few weeks:

    Dry ration kits for residents
    Cattle feed for farmers
    Home repair, household necessities and provisions 
    Medical camps and Medicine supplies  
    Road repair and flood control

     

    KERALA FLOOD RELIEF: EMERGENCY RESPONSE


    Following the worst flood Kerala has experienced in the last century, UNITED SIKHS crossed          through floodwaters and harsh landscape conditions to provide medicine and health check-ups to more than 100 residents on Wayanad tribal land. To ensure adequate nutrition post-disaster, the organization serves hot meals to local residents daily and continues to donate dry food supplies and other household items. We also set up a medical camp on water to reach remote villages. 

     

    HURRICANE MARIA: AID IN PUERTO RICO 


    Immediately following Hurricane Maria, the UNITED SIKHS Disaster team mobilized in the most remote areas of Puerto Rico. Coordinating efforts with FEMA, Red Cross, and the Coalition of Hope, our team cooked and delivered thousands of hot meals and delivered aid supplies to the elderly and children. 

    UNITED SIKHS worked with the leading organizations from the San Juan headquarters and reached the rural communities in the Puerto Rican countryside.


    UNITED SIKHS offered following relief supplies:

    Over 150,000 Meals served
    10,000+ Medical Supplies delivered
    Rebuilding of 250 plus homes

     

    FEED THE HUNGRY: GURU NANAK’S FREE KITCHEN & FOOD DRIVE


    Through Guru Nanak's Kitchen and Food Drive For All, a year-round program we launched to end hunger in the communities in which we live, our volunteers in Malaysia, Australia and the United Kingdom, and United States are constantly hard at work, serving thousands in need every month. This program has received honors from dignitaries around the world for exemplary community service.

    INDONESIA EARTHQUAKE RELIEF: SERVING FAMILIES 

    Donggala region in Indonesia was struck by a series of devastating earthquakes, a tsunami and volcanic eruption in 2018. We started serving daily lunch and dinner meals to hundreds of families impacted by the disasters. To help children maintain their education, we donated school supplies, books and stationary. Local families, who are predominantly Muslim, were singing, praying and cooking langar with our volunteers and learning about the values of Sikhi for the first time.

     

    PROJECT DAAL ROTI: SUICIDE PREVENTION & STIPEND PROVISIONS

    To help provide support to those at a higher risk of suicide in India, UNITED SIKHS launched the Daal Roti and Farmer Widows Pension programs in 2018, which provide basic household needs, food rations, monthly stipends and mental health counseling. More than a third of the female suicides around the world are committed by Indian women. It is the leading cause of death among young Indian women (15 - 29 years of age). These statistics, coupled with the more than 300,000 farmers and farm worker suicides since 1995, point to an alarming public health crisis across the country. UNITED SIKHS started providing basic food basic (Daal Roti) on a daily basis to impacted families. To further help curb farmer suicide statistics, the organization started providing mental health counseling and monthly rations. 

    SHILLONG LEGAL & HUMANITARIAN AID: SIKH COMMUNITY UNDER ATTACK 

    To defend freedom of religion, our legal team continues to advocate for the land rights on behalf of the Sikh community in Punjabi Lane, who are being forced from the place they have called home for centuries. Faced with mob violence, illegal imprisonment of minorities, protests and attacks against Sikh homes and businesses, our advocates have successfully argued for the release of three young Sikh men who were unlawfully detained by local police during disturbances in summer of 2018. We provided the meals and shelter to 350 affected families along with legal aid for 3 Sikh youths unlawfully detained due to false reports of violence.

     

    ROHINGYA REFUGEE CRISIS: CONTINUING MAN-MADE DISASTER
    In collaboration with the United Nations Shelter Cluster, UNITED SIKHS is committed to provide necessary support to the 10,000 refugees who have found safe haven in Naikhogchari, Bangladesh, near the border of Myanmar. The stateless Rohingya minority in Myanmar have been described by the United Nations as “the most persecuted people in the world.” The vast majority of Rohingya refugees reaching Bangladesh during this latest crisis are women and children, including newborn babies. Many others are elderly people requiring additional aid and protection. Our teams were able to provide the following relief services:

    :

    Meals Served: 1.05 Million 
    Medical Camps: 36,000+ Patients Treated  
    Medical Aid Provided: 2,000+ patients 
    Health Counselor Program Outreach: 50,000 Refugees 
    More than 50 Workshops conducted

     

    TEXAS DEPUTY SANDEEP SINGH DHALIWAL H.E.R.O. FUND

    The HERO Fund was established by UNITED SIKHS in honor of Deputy Sheriff Sandeep Singh Dhaliwal, in keeping in line with his vision to help first-responders who are affected in the line of duty and in urgent need of emergency funds. A devoted husband and proud father to three young children, Deputy Dhaliwal was a 10-year veteran of Harris County Sheriff’s Office who served as Director of Homeland Security for UNITED SIKHS. He was fatally shot while conducting a traffic stop on Sept. 27, 2019. He proudly served Harris County, Texas, his country and the world as a public servant and humanitarian. In the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Maria, he led teams of UNITED SIKHS volunteers to provide disaster relief to those in need across Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.

    Any first-responder (Police Officer, Sheriff, Paramedic/EMT, and Firefighter) who is in need of emergency assistance may apply for the HERO Fund. First-responders are among the first personnel to arrive in response to an emergency situation, such as a disaster or accident. Funds can be used for medical expenses, house repair after a natural disaster (i.e. hurricane, tornado, earthquake, fire, etc.) or to help cover funeral costs for a family of a first-responder who was killed in the line of duty. As the first recipients of the newly-formed HERO Fund, Deputy Dhaliwal’s family received $1 million from UNITED SIKHS after people around the world contributed to this cause.

    HURRICANE RELIEF IN USA

    Hundreds of Sikhs across America have joined us to host donation drives to support ground relief efforts assisting thousands of residents of all faiths throughout the coastal regions of North Carolina and Florida hit by the worst storm and flooding in a generation. Sangats across Chicago, Washington, Maryland, New York, New Jersey and North Carolina raised more than $5,000 in cash donations and food supply. Immediately following the storms, we partnered with local Baptist churches, schools food banks and other faith-based organizations, including SikhLEAD, The Khalsa School, YMCA and American Red Cross, to provide essential resources, such as bottled water, warm meals, baby formula, clothing, blankets, diapers, flashlights and canned food supply. Through this effort, more than 1,000 families have received aid in areas most affected by food supply shortages and power outages.

    Project Update

    Through the Puerto Rico mission, UNITED SIKHS Disaster Relief Ground Team, in coordination with FEMA and local strategic partners, reached the island within days following Hurricane Maria. Through sheer determination, our team members worked to restore damaged water pumps in the Utuado and Lares region serving over 60,000 families. Simultaneously, our teams served fresh, hot-cooked meals reaching over 20,000 Puerto Ricans in the most remote areas and mountainous regions during the months of October and November. Subsequently, UNITED SIKHS also shipped five 40’ containers packed full of humanitarian aid with over 50,000 water bottles, over 50 pallets of relief supplies (batteries, diapers, cleaning supplies, canned foods, etc) and over 100 ‘Sawyer’ water filtration kits.

    Undoubtedly, these are significant results which have been recorded and recognized by FEMA and our strategic partners in and around the region. All of us at UNITED SIKHS are truly humbled that our volunteers empower themselves to work hard as they selflessly carry the Guru's message wherever they go and shine a light into the darkest corners of the earth.
