JOIN UNITED SIKHS – as we conduct a Multifaith Prayer alongside CanadianHART (Canadian Humanitarian Appeal for
Relief of Tamils) to stand in solidarity with your fellow Canadians who have been, and continue to be devastated, by the humanitarian crisis in Sri Lanka.
Months of military assaults have left their loved ones, and thousands of other innocent civilians injured or killed, destroying the livelihoods of much of the Northern population of Sri Lanka. At the same time, hundreds of thousands have been traumatized and displaced by the violence, and are without sufficient food, water or sanitation. While we try to come to terms with a tragedy that continues to unfold, we invite you to join us for a solemn evening of reflection, where we will pay our respects for the lives that have been lost, and pray for those which hang in the balance, dependent on us as members of the international community, to act immediately. The present inaction in the face of this crisis, cannot be allowed to continue.
Please join us June 11, as we engage with questions of how we can create a turning point in the humanitarian crisis, and help bring the aid desperately needed, to those who continue to suffer in the aftermath of the war, through our different faiths and united cause.
