A Bedford charity supporting the underprivileged will help migrants arriving in town from Afghanistan.
Extending their food support projects, SEVA Trust UK will offer 30 days of free staple-food to anyone fleeing from Afghanistan.
Founder & Chairman of SEVA Trust UK, Charan Sekhon, said: “At the time of crisis, we feel it is our duty to help all those who need support irrespective of their ethnicity or religion.
“We want to ensure any Afghani migrants coming to Bedford are well supported in our great town. Bedford that has a long history of looking after and supporting everyone who decided to make Bedford their home.”
The charity asked local Mosques and Islamic Community groups to contact them if any migrants need food help.
They are also working with other charities to provide emergency support for families and individuals who have lost their homes and livelihoods due to the conflict.
SEVA primarily focus on education, health and environmental projects.
During the pandemic they decided to support local communities and international students. In Bedfordshire, since March 2020 they have supported:
- Over 300 families
- Over 50 homeless people
- A women’s refuge in Bedfordshire
- Over 750 international students
They delivered free staple food and hot meals, right to their doors.
SEVA is made up completely of volunteers. There is not a single paid member of staff.
