In the ancient Indian language of Sanskrit, Sewa means Service.
Sewa UK is committed to working in areas which suffer from humanitarian disasters and tragedies, to provide immediate relief and rehabilitation, by mobilising technical assistance to relief operations, and by investing in building infrastructure and services in the aftermath of such tragedies.
We work in places that are less privileged than the UK or the Western World to help make a difference to the quality of lives of those suffering from what can only be described as misfortune.
Sewa UK is a charity of Indian origin that came into prominence in the 90s when huge natural disasters affected India. Working in partnership with business leaders, politicians, civic society and local communities, Sewa UK has raised substantial funds for various calamities internationally. As a result of partnership with local NGO's, who are at the coal face, we seek to rebuild communities, with their long term prosperity in mind.
We are proud to have the support of people of all backgrounds for our campaigns, appeals and volunteering projects. We are a non-sectarian and non-governmental voluntary organisation regulated & supervised by the Charity Commission for England & Wales. We are also a limited company, and are registered at Companies House.
In line with the definition of Sewa, we seek to be of Service.
