AMRITSAR: Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) and Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) will be dispatching food packets for the earthquake victims in Nepal from Sunday onwards.

DSGMC president Manjit Singh GK told TOI that they would send 25,000 food packets everyday to Nepal. Similarly, SGPC president Avtar Singh Makkar said they too would be dispatching 20,000 food packets on Sunday itself.

"We will continue to send food packets as long as these are needed in Nepal by the earthquake victims," said GK. The food packets would contain four to five chapatis, dry vegetable cooked in 'desi ghee' and pickle wraped in silver foil, said GK. The food packets would be sent to Nepal with help of the Air Force.
