Updates on COVID19

Sewa-Aifw is qualified as ESSENTIAL during the stay-at-home order. We are continuing our services to the South Asian community in-person when necessary but are otherwise working remotely to best serve the community at large. One of the essential services we are actively providing is meals & assistance to seniors, vulnerable adults, and to those who are stranded & alone.

We continue to post the most useful information and links on our COVID19 Updates Page or our Travel Info Page.

If you do need immediate assistance or are in need of our services, please contact us. Our 24×7 Crisis Line (952) 912 – 9100 is also available for immediate assistance.

Our Vision

Envisioning a South Asian community that is healthy and violence-free, with self-determined women and engaged and supported elders and families.



SEWA needs Meals for Seniors & Victims

We at SEWA have been providing meals for Seniors & Victims of Domestic Violence in the South Asian community who are unable to cook, lack funds, are living in shelters, and/or don’t have access to the culturally specific food they require. We also accommodate various dietary restrictions including: vegetarian food, low sodium, low sugar.
During this pandemic of COVID19, we are getting more calls for help from Seniors & Victims who really need access to food. We have our volunteers ready to deliver meals, but we do need additional funds for groceries and preparation.
We need to plan for the next 90 days. A 5 meal supply for each senior costs $70. A 16 meal supply for each senior costs $175.
Please donate today and let’s make sure the vulnerable in the South Asian community can get the food they need. Your donation goes directly towards balanced meals which include rotis (flatbread), sabzis (cooked vegetables), daal (lentils), and fruit (or similar assortment of food).
