SINGAPORE - Mr Charanjit Walia, a 64-year-old Singaporean and former restaurateur who has been living in Poland on a temporary resident visa for the past 25 years, is on the ground at the border with Ukraine, offering support to refugees streaming across a checkpoint.
"What I am doing at the border is to make sure no one is hungry," he told The Straits Times late on Tuesday night (March 1). "My mission is to feed the poor, needy and homeless. It's my seva as a Sikh." Seva means to help or do service in Sanskrit.
