Turbans 4 Australia (T4A) is a charity organization that was founded in 2015, grounded in the Sikh concept of “seva” or selfless service to the community, while promoting multiculturalism and religious tolerance

During Australia’s devastating bushfire season of 2019/20, T4A volunteers delivered emergency food, water and grocery supplies to regional and rural communities in New South Wales.

They prepared hot meals for emergency service staff and people displaced by the bushfires, and delivered hand tools to help residents clean up in the bushfire aftermath and raised money to donate to Rural Fire Brigades.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the team has cooked around 16,000 hot meals and packed over ten tonnes of groceries to help elderly, disabled or homeless, international students or temporary migrants who may be ineligible for government financial support and are unable to return home to their families.
