ENGLAND: During a time of year where most of the UK is enjoying unusual warmth in the winter period and getting together to celebrate the festive season, some northern areas have been subjected to adverse weather conditions leaving people isolated and in danger due to the overwhelming floods.
York and Cumbria have experienced the worst flooding in 70 years on UK mainland, which has led to the Army and UK emergency teams being deployed to help with rescue and supplies.
Another team of community servants who have been out there in these horrific conditions are Khalsa Aid. Many may now be accustomed to seeing Ravi Singh and the Khalsa Aid organisation helping out all over the globe where there is a need for shelter, food and humanitarian suppor, however, the organisation is also quick to put boots on ground in the UK also when such tragedies occur.
