Sikh couple launches drive to help feed county homeless

Later, they hope to buy a portable shower for homeless people to use.

After running into some obstacles while feeding needy people in a neighborhood park, an Oceanside couple is doubling down in their effort and raising money to buy a trailer that will provide even more meals to people throughout the county.

As part of that goal, Davinder Singh and his wife Harisimran Kaur Khalsa have created the Duwara Consciousness Foundation. Khalsa said the foundation’s name means “gates to consciousness” in Sanskrit, and the group’s misson, as described on, includes teaching compassion, providing hunger relief and promoting equality.

Singh said the mission aligns with their Sikh faith, but is intended to help all people.

“We have a lot of friends who are from different faiths, and in all honesty, it’s in all of our faith to help others,” he said. “I can tell you that in Sikhism, our simple point of being here is to help everybody, regardless of their personal faith, regardless of their sexual orientation, regardless of their personal circumstances. That is our job, and I think that’s a human’s job to do something like that.”
