Facebook: http://tiny.cc/Fallenfarmersfund ​ GoFundMe: http://tiny.cc/fallenfarmers ​ Farmers across India have been waging peaceful protests for the past few months in response to a spate of bills passed in the Parliament in September 2020. Farmers are contesting the deregulation of agricultural markets, mass privatization and reduced income potential among many other concerns. As thousands of these farmers are in the capital of Delhi to engage in talks with the central government and exercise their fundamental democratic right to peaceful assembly, our teams and volunteers have been on the ground to serve urgent life affirming needs. We have over 150 volunteers doing seva at the Singhu, Tikri, Gazipur and Shahjahanpur borders of Delhi. The following services have been identified as part of this engagement: 1) Medical Care - Ambulance Services, Health Monitoring, Injury Care, Mental Health Services and Physiotherapy. We have set up medical camps and ambulance services at 4 border locations. Our teams have arranged for 24/7 emergency service for everyone taking part in this long arduous fight for justice. Daily we have 45-50 doctors volunteering their services at the medical camps. 2) Water Services - Drinking, Cooking, Washing and Bathing Clean water is a major necessity among the protesting farmers. We are filling this critical need at the request of farmers in India’s capital in support of their demands for justice and economic security. We have provided over 100,000 liters/day of water to date. 3) Extreme Winter Weather-Wear: Jackets, Sweaters, Thermals, Mufflers, Socks and Raincoats Hundreds of these items have been distributed in harsh winter conditions especially to the elderly who are playing a pivotal role in this movement for economic justice. 4) Daily Necessities: Portable Toilets, Water Heaters, Washing Machines, Shoes, Slippers, Undergarments, Dustbins, 5) Housing Needs: Tents, Tarpals (tarpaulins), Mattresses, Blankets, Sleeping Bags #farmersprotest​ #standwithfarmers​ #farmbills​ Video Services: https://www.instagram.com/santsphotography/ Voice-over: Vishavjit Singh aka Sikh Captain America, https://www.sikhtoons.com/ Cover Design: https://www.instagram.com/justaboutdesign/ ​ About Us: Associated with the United Nations Dept. of Public Information UNITED SIKHS is a global humanitarian charity that advocates for civil and human rights across 10 chapters.
