The Alambagh Gurudwara in Lucknow has reached out to neighbouring blocks & rural areas to offer pandemic relief.
The Lucknow gurudwaras have risen to the public need in the grave hour of this pandemic and have started 'life-saving langars' across the city to provide pandemic respite. These langars are providing free food, medical-grade oxygen and even medical supplies to the needy, saving several lives. Under the umbrella of these amenities, the Kendriya Singh Sabha Gurudwara at Alambgah ventured to expand the scope of its aid and reach out to neighbouring and rural regions around Lucknow to facilitate medical relief for all.
Lucknow Gurudwaras engage in the service of mankind
On Friday, the District Mayor flagged off a truck full of relief material from the Alambagh Gurudwara to Raebareli. As per reports, this consignment also carried oxygen concentrators and corona medical kits provided by the Lucknow-based Sonu Sood Foundation and Vishwas Trust.
The 'oxygen langar seva', i.e., the distribution of liquid medical oxygen service by the Sikh community has been rolled out across several gurudwaras across the state, including Lucknow, Unnao, Hardoi, Sitapur, Ayodhya, among others. In the capital city, the demand for medical-grade oxygen is being met in blocks and tehsils also. This has helped to provide essential resources to the pandemic-stricken citizens, in rural areas too.
Besides this, Lucknow's Yahiyaganj Gurudwara has also started a langar service for all the helpless labourers and rickshawalas living on the roadside, amid the pandemic. Simultaneously, an awareness drive against the threat of COVID spread and for the treatment of COVID-19 patients is also being facilitated here.
Similarly, food distribution and awareness campaigns are also being run at the Sadar Gurudwara and free medical aid is also available here for the needy, informed the Gurudwara President. Additionally, free food service is also being organised for the needy at the Gurudwara Naka Hindola. All these aids are reportedly being supervised under the management of the Lucknow Gurudawara Management Committee.
