The nation is in lockdown and the government has announced food and shelter to the poor but the people of the country are ready to offer their help too.
Gurdwaras across Punjab, Haryana and Delhi is preparing langar to feed the homeless during the nationwide lockdown to curb the spread of COVID-19.
Rooms for isolation wards and quarantine facilities for the treatment of COVID-19 positive patients will be set up in ‘Serai’ (Inn) of the Gurudwaras.
According to the sources, due to the government’s restrictions, currently, only 5 per cent of devotees are working to prepare the food. Along with it, they are preparing food for approximately 40,000 to 50,000 people in Delhi.
On a daily basis before the lockdown, the devotees in the Bangla Sahib Gurudwara were preparing langar for almost 10 lakh people per day.
They will also give food packets to the government to be distributed to the needy.
