Did you know there are over 100 Sikh young men from Punjab living on the streets of Southall? We have encountered 2 men over the age of 55 living on the streets.

Where are they living?
In Dustbins
Cemeteries
Disused Garages
Under Bridges

To cope many have turned to class A Drugs, such as Heroin and Crack Cocaine. The reason for this is to cope with the cold, to suppress their hunger and to help them sleep on the streets.

Many are suffering from serious health conditions such as Hyperthermia, Scabies, Gangrene and cannot get immediate medical attention.

What are we doing to help:

Providing Drug care.
Providing Clean clothing.
Providing Sleeping bags.
Providing Hot food.
Providing moral support.
Assisting with those who want to return back to Punjab.
Putting them in contact with health centers.
In the process of commissioning a documentary to be made to highlight the plight of these men.

What are the Local Gurudwaras doing?
Sri Guru Singh Sabah is making sure none of these boys get turned away for Langar and if they are unfit to enter Langar is provided outside for them.

Allowing us to appeal to the sangat for any kind of support required and highlighting this issue.

What are the local churches doing?

Providing hot meals.
Providing church halls for drop in centers for the homeless.
Hot showers.
Clean clothes
Counseling service.

As we know Christianity is a missionary religion which through its teaching aims to convert any individual coming through their doors.

To date we can confirm that they have converted 2 Sikh men through their love and compassion.
How many more will be converted.

Who will offer these boys help next? Mosques?

How can you help?
