Mrs. Kasuri was given a full tour of the Gurudwara to assess the conditions and need of the refugees there.

He passionately appealed for more needed aid for the Sikhs at Gurudwara Panja Sahib.
Mrs. Kasuri also announced that another Womens Wing delegation will be back next week with water coolers, stationary and books for children, clothing for women and medicines required in their camp.
