COVID19 Relief for Bangalore (INDIA)

Bengaluru in Southern India has emerged as the biggest COVID-19 epicentre. April 2021 alone saw the highest number of fatalities in Bengaluru. In this unfolding tragedy, the UNITED SIKHS teams are working tirelessly on the ground to serve urgent life saving needs. An exemplary example, is where the Organisation has converted the Koramangala Indoor Stadium into a COVID care  facility where the group will provide free medicines and free oxygen supply to patients! Your support - big or small, can go a long way in saving many lives! Please help us help the people of Bengaluru! 

UNITED SIKHS is a U.N. affiliated, international, non-profit, non-governmental, humanitarian relief, education, human development and advocacy organization that aims to empower those in need, especially disadvantaged and minority communities around the world.

UNITED SIKHS teams have been at the forefront of serving emergency needs in cities hit hard by the Covid pandemic from North to South India. As we continue these humanitarian services in Delhi and Punjab new epicenters are emerging in South India.

Bangalore city in India has become the latest epicenter of the crippling second wave of the Covid pandemic in India. Thousands of social media messages with the word ‘help’ have been sent out in the last few weeks. With a record number of cases (over 400,000), a high fatality rate, and a near complete breakdown of infrastructure and support services, our dedicated local team of veteran volunteers have been working round the clock to serve families in desperate need.

There is dire need for essential medical services, pharmaceuticals, beds, oxygen supplies, concentrators, meals and paramedic services.
“Our teams are receiving frantic calls for help from families across Bangalore. Every age group is impacted. Just recently our ambulance drove an elderly woman to a hospital that refused to admit her because she was suspected to have been infected with black fungus. Three other hospitals refused admission also. Despite these challenges, we remain committed to serving fellow citizens in these unprecedented times.” - Mohinderjit Singh
With a team of two dozen dedicated volunteers, we have been serving Covid Care Centers in Bangalore set up in partnership with Bruhat Bengaluru Managala Palike (BBMP) and the Indian Army.  Kendriya Vidyalaya MEG Center set up by Indian Army with 100 beds
