The Cause

NishkamSWAT would like to announce our 4th Annual Snowdonia Challenge

on Saturday 21st September 2019 themed 'Serve Humanity with Every Step'.

The sewa volunteers are blessed to be a part of what has grown substantially in the past 12 months. We have seen a marked increase in the weekly numbers of those we are serving with hot meals, clothing and sleeping bags. We now have 27 weekly outreach sessions in 19 Locations across the UK which equate to 3000 meals a year having most recently added Southampton, Swindon and Lancaster, not including Brighton which we do monthly.

A call to help! - With the increased number of people, we are serving we require your help to raise funds for the sewa to continue. This year we are raising money for the homeless outreach work to continue which will include buying food and supplies to distribute at each outreach session. An example of what a single average outreach session costs is around £350, we have 27 per week which equates to 1,404 sessions per anum that require funding! Other projects in the funding pipeline include:

1. Essential Supplies for the homeless mission including perishable & non-perishable food.

2. Winter clothing, sleeping bags, blankets, hats, socks, gloves etc.
