Bal Kaur Sandhu of Khalsa Aid, who is coordinating the deployment in Berkshire said: “Khalsa Aid are spreading their wings to other parts of the country. We recognise we need to stand shoulder to shoulder with our communities and support them. We will be operating in Datchet, Colnbrook and Wraysbury. We are also appealing for volunteers to assist Khalsa Aid – hands on assistance is needed in all three areas”

 

Khalsa Aid was the first NGO to provide relief and hands on assistance to areas affected. Since Friday 8 February, Khalsa Aid has been assisting the Somerset region by distributing sand bags, water, antiseptic fluid and other essentials including several dry suits for other community members assisting.

 

On Monday 10 February, Khalsa Aid volunteers from Bedford, Walsall, Birmingham and Leicester, who recently returned from working in the Philippines following Typhoon Haiyan, joined Chief Executive Ravi Singh to support the residents of Burrowbridge.

Ravinder Singh from Khalsa Aid, said: “Our volunteers are humbled by the immense support and messages of appreciation. Thank you so much for your love.”

 

“It is important that people listen to what the experts are saying and follow guidance. Lessons will need to be learned, however now isn’t the time to blame but work as one community – together we will be stronger.”
