Khalsa Aid, an international NGO that aims to provide humanitarian aid in disaster and conflict-torn places has literally stood up to its name. No matter where people are suffering in different parts of the world, they have always been there to help.
So, now when our country is witnessing one of the biggest protests of all times i.e. Farmers Protest, the volunteers of this NGO are helping their own. Here is how the volunteers have gone out of their way and helping out farmers.
1. The NGO has set up a temporary shelter home for the farmers who have no place to sleep during these chilly North Indian winters. The shelter is accommodating around 400 people and is under camera surveillance at all times.
