Delhi’s Gurudwara Bangla Sahib has been providing food to lakhs of people during the ongoing COVID 19 crisis. While they started off with distributing over 40,000 meals, they increased it to 80,000 -100,000 soon after.
There are almost 50 volunteers who sleep in the Gurudwara’s guesthouse and prepare the meals. Their noble cause prevents them from meeting their family, whom they haven’t seen since March 25, to prevent the risk of spreading the virus to them.
According to reports, the Gurudwara’s head cook Balbir Singh is up and running at 3 am to make sure 35,000 meals are ready to go by 9 am. While they’ve been working 18 hours a day, they recently felt that even the 1,00,000 meals a day were not enough. Therefore, they have now increased the number to 3,00,000.
Their work is certainly being recognized all over twitter and in news article, and deservedly so.
