The leaders of the Surrey-Delta Sikh temple banded together just before Global Accessibility Awareness Day to assist a young man whose lower limbs had ceased working.
Amritpal Singh, an international student, was not self-sufficient after an accident left him paralysed below the waist.
A battery-operated wheelchair was purchased for him by members of Guru Nanak Singh Gurdwara, which has continued to give free food to the needy during the pandemic.
Every Sikh, according to President Hardeep Singh Nijjar, has a duty to serve everyone, regardless of caste or creed.
Nijjar and his crew have been assisting overseas students in Canada who confront isolation and a variety of other issues.
