The Sikh community has always been at the forefront when it comes to helping people in need during emergencies. Be it the Australian bushfires, Delhi riots or the current coronavirus pandemic, the Sikh community has selflessly offer to help to the needy in whatever way they can. 

In the national capital, Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee has offered the 'Serai' (inn) at the Gurdwara Majnu Ka Tilla to set up isolation wards and quarantine facilities to treat those affected by outbreak.

ore recently, in New York, the Sikh Centre prepared and packed over 30,000 home-cooked meals for Americans in self-isolation. New York's Mayor office approached the Sikh community to make the food packages that were then distributed to several federal agencies in the area. 

Strict hygiene measures were taken while the food was prepared such as maintaining social distance and use of face masks and gloves...

...Once we heard people were having a problem with food when they go shopping, they can't find food in the shopping centre, then we started reaching out to people in our personal capacity in the Bay Area (San Francisco)," ANI quoted, Dr Pritpal Singh, coordinator of the American Gurudwara Prabhandak Committee (west coast) as saying. 

We laud the efforts of the Sikh community and their contributing in fight against coronavirus. #InThisTogether
