DSG Posted January 7, 2013 Report Share Posted January 7, 2013 Piaree Sadh Sangat Ji WAHE GURU JI KA KHALSA WAHE GURU JI KE FATEH Waheguru has blessed us with a little bit of seva , which we would like to share with the sangat. SIKHAID charity help out people in the poorest areas around the World It is run 100% by volunteers form all back grounds , all funds raised are used 100% for the cause , some volunteers forsee the camps and spend their own money for flights and accommodation. World health organisation say :- there are approximately 39 million blind people in the World This will increase to approx 79 million if not checked 90% of the problems are in developing countries 80% can be cured/prevented SikhAID setup camps , recent venture was last November /December where a volunteer foresaw the camp , approx 500 people were screened , 119 referred for cateract operation. Along side the eye camp , Dental camps are run ( started in 2010) again by volunteers who have shipped over the equipment , some young kids have not even seen a tooth brush. Also mental health and well being workshops are being setup , last year a conference was held with NHS ( Nationla Health Service) explaining to them especially in the asian,punjabi,Sikh community theres no help availble , for example any domestic issues in the househeld our elders tell us to sweep under the carpet or tell us it will be ok ,overtime this builds up and eventually explodes and causes all sorts of mental & health problems. We are asking for help off the NHS , setup camps in Gurudawaras, visit homes etc... so that sangat and tell somebody and seek help/guidance Much much more can be done .. Piaree Sadh Sangat , lets make people aware , the more awareness the more help can be provided.
