Sikh NGO celebrates 10 years of service


SikhInside has been providing provisions to needy families since the beginning of the pandemic in March.

SIKHINSIDE distributed 250 packages of food provisions to needy families in Kuala Lumpur in conjunction with the non-governmental organisation’s 10th anniversary.

The distribution, held in cooperation with Sikh Naujawan Sabha Malaysia, was carried out in Setapak, Sentul, Jinjang, Segambut, Sungai Besi and Ampang.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, several Sikh organisations and gurdwara have been diligently providing food and groceries to people in dire need.

SikhInside had been actively participating in food distribution to patients at Kuala Lumpur Hospital every Sunday.

However, the initiative had to be halted due to restrictions on the number of people allowed into the hospital during the pandemic.

Doing charity is not something new for this NGO as its passion for volunteerism began a decade ago.

Spearheaded by a group of Sikh youths in 2010, SikhInside’s social work was initially centred on creating digital tools to teach young Sikhs about the religion.

These days, the organisation has turned to providing assistance to the needy by joining forces with other Sikh volunteer groups.

SikhInside president Ajit Singh said the team did not want to sit idle during this crisis, so they decided to pool their resources with the help of friends, families, volunteers and sponsors to reach out to the underprivileged.

“Many have lost their sources of income during this tough period.

“It makes us happy and blessed to be able to help those facing hardship, in our small way, ” he said, adding that SikhInside also provided food aid to people in Masjid India and Selayang during the enhanced movement control order.
