URGENT NEED

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).
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic Violence has been a problem in our society, and our reports and incidences have only increased with the COVID19 Pandemic and being stuck at home.  We provide direct services for victims & survivors, and also work to raise awareness about DV and initiate cultural change in our South Asian community.  Please stay tuned on our social media @sewaaifwmn for further into – and check out our recent blog post.

Updates on COVID19

Sewa-Aifw is working to bring you information and updates on COVID19 on our Covid Resources page. 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, victims, and those adversely affected by COVID19.

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