Owing to the coronavirus outbreak, everything has come to halt and people have no option but to save their lives by staying at home. Staying at home is not the same for all as some people have to be in the frontline to fight the virus, like doctors or police officers.
In the US, the Sikh community has been helping the warriors and is serving them food ever since the lockdown has been announced. The US has currently been the hotspot of the pandemic in the world, especially New York.
While people locked inside their homes can still manage to feed themselves but the brave staff at hospitals and police personnel working round the clock often find their health deteriorating.

A man named Shalinder Singh and his family has always been committed to serving people even before the lockdown. However now, they are delivering pizzas to hospitals and police stations around the city so these warriors don’t stay hungry.
“Before the pandemic, Shalinder Singh spent Sundays at his Sikh temple helping with a community meal for 300 people or more in suburban Detroit”

Sikh community, all over the world, is doing everything they can for helping the needy as the pandemic has hit us badly. It is a beautiful example of humanity being the bigger religion and motivates us all to do our bit in helping everyone and anyone around us in every way that we can.
