Panay Island, Philippines- On January 17th, 2013, the UNITED SIKHS Haiyan Relief Team officially handed over the first eight houses to the Typhoon Haiyan Survivors in the village Crossing Lais, Binuntucan, Panay Island. The Vice Governor, Esteban Evan 'Nonoy' B. Contreras, of Capiz, Panay Island, Philippines joined in the presentation of the homes to the new owners.

Our team consulted with engineers and decided to proceed to build concrete and plywood houses with solid base. This new type of homes will last up to level 4 typhoon. The bamboo houses would not have lasted another typhoon. Click here for a breakdown of materials. The Governor of Capiz, Panay Island stated, "This has never been done by any NGO here and we are proud to say that only UNITED SIKHS are making proper homes for the village people of Panay today."

“This was an amazing moment for the relief team on this successful completion of the first few homes and a proud day for UNITED SIKHS Haiyan Relief Efforts! We thank all our supporters, donors and volunteers who made this happen.” said Gurvinder Singh, Director of UNITED SIKHS AID.

Unanimously, all survivors have conveyed their deepest gratitude to our donors for bringing their lives back together one step at a time. The people affected by the devastating typhoon were happy and felt blessed when houses were handed over. They have been living in temporary shelters since November 8, 2013, when Typhoon Haiyan hit the Island.

Our Mission

To transform underprivileged and minority communities and individuals into informed and vibrant members of society through civic, educational and personal development programs, by fostering active participation in social and economic activity.

UNITED SIKHS is also an avenue for networking between like-minded organisations to establish and nurture meaningful projects and dialogues - whether social, cultural or political- to promote harmony, understanding and reciprocity in our villages, towns and cities.

UNITED SIKHS is a coalition of organisations and individuals, who share a common vision based on the belief that there is no greater endeavour than to serve, empower and uplift fellow beings. The core of our philosophy is an unwavering commitment to civic service and social progress on behalf of the common good.

Accordingly, UNITED SIKHS has sought to fulfil its mission not only by informing, educating and uplifting fellow beings but also by participating in cross-cultural and political exchanges to ensure that the promises and benefits of democracy are realized by all.

We at UNITED SIKHS believe that the development of enlightened and progressive societies can be made possible by socially conscious groups of people who make a commitment to develop and direct human potential. Our work, efforts and achievements stand as a testament to our faith in this vision.
