Sewak Singh, aged 22 was flying a kite on the roof of one of the blocks at the Widows Colony, Tilak Vihar Delhi. He suffered a tragic fall and many horrific injuries followed including many broken bones, punctured lungs and a fractured spine.

Doctors have informed Seva84 that it is highly probable that Sewak Singh will never walk again, as the main veins around his spine have been damaged.

Sewak Singh has already undergone operations, and he has more to follow.

Sewak Singh’s father drives a rickshaw for a living, their income is not much at all. The costs so far stands at 3.5lacks, doctors have informed us the costs are likely to amount to the equivalent of over £8000.

It is highly probably that Bhai Sewak Singh will now be permanently disabled, so the family will certainly have medical costs in the future.

Within the next few days, Sewak Singh will undergo surgery to have plates inserted into his back. The family are stressed as they cannot afford the treatment.

Sangat ji to keep the operations going, we urgently need finance. Within the next few days we need to raise at around £3000 and we have only managed to raise a few hundred.

Sewak’s father can be contacted on (0091) 9999334759. Indian Sangat can donate to National Branch F-block Vikas Puri New delhi 110018. Account Number 4496001500017094. The bank account is in the name of Sewak Singh State Bank of India 20011504100 Branch A-5 WZ Keshopur.

UK Sangat should donatee to Seva84. 100% of donations received on 19th, 20th 21st and 22nd August will go towards Sewak Singhs medical expenses so please donate now.

We can not stress enough the urgent need for money.

We are certainly not an econmically weak community in the west, we spend thousands on our weddings, family programmes, getting our Gurdwaras out of debt etc.

We must be able help and support our brothers/sisters in the widow colonies. Please don't miss this opportunity to help a fellow sikh.

***Seva84 : Bhai Sewak Singh (aged 22) Update***

Bhai Sewak Singh fell from a roof in the Widow Colony at Tilak Vihar, Delhi. He has suffered several broken bones, his ribs have caused a punctured lung, and he has damaged his spine.

Bhai Sewak Singh’s health: Thankfully, his operations were successful, one operation included treatment from a neurology surgeon. Seva84 has now learnt Sewak Singh’s legs are totally not functioning (due to immense damage to spine and veins). There is some movement in his hands and there is little movement in his eyes which he shows when his name is called. Doctors have said they will know more after several days of observations. Doctors have also expressed it is highly unlikely he will ever walk again. Please pray for the recovery of Bhai Sewak Singh.

Financial Situation: The family have received donations of 1.5lakhs (approx) from other sangat, and 75,000rs they have managed themselves. They are a poor family, and in need of our support. The hospitals have now billed the family RS 4.5 lakhs – this cost is increasing. The hospital have advised the family that the total cost could exceed RS 6 lakhs (£7000-£8000).

Seva84 (registered charity 1147843) have managed to secure £2015 for the family, largely due to sangats donations since Sunday. We kindly refer you to the previous status messages which provides transparency on the recent donations received by Seva84. Please note, 100% of donations received from Sunday 19th – Thursday 23rd August 2012 will go directly towards the medical expenses of Bhai Sewak Singh.

Thank you, we continue to appeal to sangat for urgent donations to secure the treatment of Bhai Sewak Singh. Please also keep Bhai Sewak Singh in your prayers.

Very sad, donated what I can. If you offered a gift aid option for UK taxpayers, you can get much more value from your donations, I know you're a new charity (registered June), but please do look into it. Please see BT's giving page- it's more safe and secure than bank transfers, zero commission and you can claim gift aid on UK donations.

Donated what I could.

Really sad to say, not many comments/donations for this noble cause, but the Post "20 Sikhs converted to Christianty" is flooded with posts. We are good on posting, we moan when other religion missionairies champion in donations/charities to help the human cause, but we never take immediate and necessary action when and where required for our own brethern.

Thanks Seva84.
