The video was shared on Twitter by Ravinder Singh, a Sikh philanthropist who is the founder and CEO of Khalsa Aid. It has received over 131k views and 6k likes.He said that the video was from Ukraine and called it ‘Guru Ka Langar on a train’ that was heading from Ukraine towards the Polish border. In the clip, we can see the volunteers handing out roti and sabzi to the students. “These guys were fortunate to get on this train which is travelling east of Ukraine to the west (to Polish border),” he shared in his tweet.

“Hardeep Singh has been providing Langar and assistance to many students from different countries. What a guy,” he added.

The concept of ‘Langar’ emerges from the Sikh ideology of ‘Sewa’, that is, to do service for humankind. A community meal is cooked and served at Gurudwaras by volunteers with the aim that nobody goes without food irrespective of caste or religion.

Twitter users shared their support for the volunteers who are supplying food in Ukraine. Take a look at the responses:

This is not the first time that Sikh volunteers have stepped up to do their bit for the community around them. In November 2021, the workers had delivered over 3,000 meals to those stranded in the Canada floods.
