Chandigarh: As Kerala reels under its worst flood in nearly a century, Sikh volunteers from the Khalsa Aid International, the UK based philanthropist group, have reached the state to help the flood victims. Their group’s volunteers from their Indian wing reached Kochi and have set up a Langar to feed food for 8000 people. With the flood situation continues to be precarious, people from all around the country are doing their bit to help the people in distress.

Now, the Sikh volunteers have been cooking meals to feed those stranded in the rains and have been without basic amenities. The group collaborated with Gurdwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha in Kochi and have set up their community kitchen there.
Earlier in June, volunteers of the charity organisation went to Assam to help flood victims in the state and it is not the first time they have come forward help people in distress. The UK-based foundation is known for its philanthropic work at ground-zero, be it helping Syrian or Rohingya refugees or orphans in Haiti.
