Students from the University of BC Okanagan are raising funds to support farmers in India.
UBCO’s Bhangra Club and Punjabi Students Association will be selling treat boxes, with all proceeds going to Khalsa Aid.
“Farmers have been peacefully protesting for the last six months regarding three new farming legislations in India,” the groups said in a statement.
“Throughout these past months, they have experienced roadblocks and violence… however, they are continuing to peacefully protest because farming is their livelihood.”
The groups are putting together the treat boxes and are asking members of the community to support them. They are looking for local vendors to collaborate with and donate goods such as gift cards and other treats to be put into the packages and for local businesses to sponsor some of the boxes.
