Melbourne: The Australian Sikh community has been working behind the scenes to ensure vulnerable or financially unstable people can have something to eat, reported LADbible.
Scores of people across Australia have been let go by their employer or might be struggling to make ends meet as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, reads the report.
For weeks, the Sikh Volunteers Australia (SVA) Facebook group has been updated with photos and videos of the meals they are cooking and delivering to people across Melbourne.
They’ve been working around the clock to buy supplies, cook and deliver thousands of meals to those who have been impacted by the outbreak of Covid-19.
Sikh Volunteers Australia (SVA) member Manpreet Singh said: “The initiative was started three years ago in South East part of Melbourne and we have been serving free food packs to those in need, like elderly, single parent or people in self isolation.
“We have also started a new service for international students now and we are expecting the deliveries to go up.”
