United Sikhs has swiftly mobilized their Emergency Response Teams (ERTs) to provide assistance to the flood-affected communities in Mohali, Rupnagar, Sangrur, Ludhiana and other areas. With the submergence of several regions in Panjab, the ERTs are on the ground providing emergency assistance to the people impacted.
Gurvinder Singh, Director of United Sikhs, said, “Our teams have reached the affected areas, rescuing people to safer areas. We are also assessing the most urgent requirements of the affected communities. The on-ground evaluation will help identify and prioritize the immediate needs of the people, enabling them to provide targeted assistance efficiently.”
Recognizing the importance of accessibility and convenience, United Sikhs teams are also geographically reviewing the affected regions to identify suitable locations for setting up satellite centers. These centers will serve as operational hubs for providing essential relief materials, medical aid, and other necessary services to the flood-affected individuals and families.
Hardayal Singh, Programme Director, United Sikhs, said, “To ensure seamless delivery of assistance, we are also mobilizing a fleet of vans and ambulances equipped with essential supplies and resources. These vans are being deployed to the affected areas, enabling our teams to rapidly respond to the immediate needs of the communities. United Sikhs encourages individuals to come forward and support our relief efforts. Donations in the form of funds, essential supplies, or volunteer time are vital in helping the people and provide aid to a larger number of individuals. Contact us at 98140-91339.
