At a Sikh Temple (Gurudwara) called ‘Bangla Sahib’, the devotees of Sikh Faith prepared food for the needy during the Coronavirus crisis. During this time, a lot of people who are the daily wage earners are currently in dire need of the basic necessities to survive. Food is the most important necessity during this time. Help from the government has not reached each and every person who requires help.

The Temple committee provided rooms to doctors and nurses facing accommodation issues. Many doctors and nurses do not wish to go to their homes to avoid any spread of the virus. Hence the Gurudwara (Temple) committee provided them with sanitized rooms with all the daily requirements taken care of.
