Dear Family & Friends,
As you are aware Harinder & I are Trustees for UK Friends of Unique Home. A UK based charity that supports Unique Home in Jalandhar. The Home takes in unwanted abandoned girls regardless of their religion or creed and helps them have the life that was denied to them by their parents.
We visited the home in April and the work they do is simply amazing. Bibi Parkash Kaur, the founder of the Home who herself was abandoned, is a ray of hope in Punjab. Rather shockingly, it is Punjab which currently has the highest rate of female foeticide and infanticide.
We are committed to raising as much awareness and funds for them as we can and to do this we have organised a Dinner & Dance in Wolverhampton on Saturday 2nd November. All details are attached on the eflyer. This is to be a family event to be enjoyed from the eldest to the youngest!
Everyone involved in the event have volunteered their time and services including Lembher Hussainpuri who has waived his fee. We decided to hold this event in Midlands because of a huge amount of personal support and also because of the large Punjabi population there. It is so important to bring the work of Unique Home to the attention of those that visit Punjab often as we want them to go and see for themselves what Bibi ji and Unique Home are doing.
The timing of our event is on Bhandi Chorr Diwas & Diwali weekend. At a time when Sikhs & Hindus celebrate the triumph of good over evil, please join us to help those that are tackling the current evil of abandoning girls for no reason other than their gender.
If you haven’t already please confirm how many tickets you would like. Where possible we are trying to sell tables of 10 to one individual who is then responsible for filling that table…makes our lives that little bit easier! But if you’d like a couple of tickets that is fine too! Tickets are £35, including a champagne reception, full sit down meal, entertainment, auction & raffle!
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on the 2nd.
Rupinder & Harinder
PS: Please do forward this email to anyone you think maybe interested in attending and also any businesses that want to get involved in sponsoring the event!
