Sikh Relief is a UK registered charity focused on creating a lasting legacy of positive change in people’s lives. Originating as the Sikh Organisation for Prisoner Welfare (SOPW), Sikh Relief began providing for the welfare of Sikh Prisoners of Conscience in various different ways. These were people in jail convicted or accused of crimes against the state resulting from decades of documented oppression and state sponsored Genocide. SOPW continues to support and help gain the freedom of these Sikh prisoners throughout India.
We support those Sikh Prisoners who have followed their conscience and reacted to state tyranny, oppression and genocidal policies.
They say “It takes a village to raise a child” and as such we support the children belonging to underprivileged families unable to cope with the financial demands of modern education in a underdeveloped social environment.
