“We needed to assist out the neighborhood. That’s a part of our Sikh values. We need to deal with all people equal, in order that there’s no distinction between women and men. That’s what the message we’re going for is,” stated Shaizinder Kaur, director with the Regina chapter of the World Sikh Group of Canada.
The packages, which embrace tooth brushes, cleaning soap, hand sanitizer and extra, include a handwritten card.
“We had college students at Harbour Touchdown Faculty make the playing cards. I like to interact youngsters on this in order that they perceive that not all people is as lucky as they’re,” Kaur stated.
“They’re very considerate. These playing cards they make make my day. After I have a look at at them and see the fervour they need to serve the neighborhood – I don’t have phrases to explain it.”
Since 2012, the World Sikh Group of Canada has placed on the occasion, formally often known as “One Billion Rising” at cities throughout the nation.
The title is supposed to represent the variety of ladies who’re assaulted or abused of their lifetimes.
That is the fourth yr the Regina Sikh neighborhood is participating within the occasion.
This time, they’re donating to YWCA Regina and the Regina Transition Home.
