Surrey: The Sikh Seva Foundation opened the first International Student Help Centre in Surrey. The volunteers of the foundation have recognized the issues and problems for the international students. The students have been casted over the years and there is a stigma that needs to be broken.
The foundation believes that the bridge between the international students and the local South Indian community needs to be built. Sikh Seva volunteers have completed a deep analysis for the root cause of this issue and have created a plan to help these children in Canada. The volunteers have traveled around and listened to the struggles faced by the students whether they are from work, government, friends, school or anything else.
“We believe that as fellow immigrants to this Indigenous land we need to help and stand for our children. Our Sikhi values teach us the lesson of Sarbat da bhala in which case we need to care for all and treat them like our own,” the foundation said.
The Student Help Centre is located in Surrey at the address 7748 128 Street where student will be able to get all items free of cost. To start with, the centre will have daily household items that the students can take for free. The public can donate all usable household items and furniture which the students will be able to use. The Help Centre will be open on Wednesdays from 6-8 pm & Sundays from 2-5pm. More timing will be added in the near future and all the updates will be posted on our facebook page & website.
