Manjit Singh’s Last Meal

(Pleasanton, CA)


This week, Ensaaf launches its #WhyIGiveToEnsaaf campaign asking its supporters to let us know why you give your time, money, or social media space to Ensaaf. While we gain inspiration from your stories of support, we hope to raise $100,000 by the end of 2015 to hire two staff--two more people dedicated to ending impunity and achieving justice for the Decade of Disappearances in Punjab.

Memories of Their Loved Ones

The survivors in Punjab have entrusted Ensaaf with memories of their loved ones to share with the world. This week we will share a series of images that materialize those memories.

Bachan Kaur remembers the last meal her son Manjit Singh had before Punjab Police abducted him from home and killed him in March 1992. Manjit Singh was 22 years old, and worked as a day laborer.

Share Your Reason

As you remember Manjit Singh, please add the official campaign logo over your Facebook and/or Twitter profile picture. Share your reason for giving to Ensaaf, or use this one: “I give to Ensaaf to begin a new chapter of accountability in India.”

Why Jasjit Singh Dhanoa, Program Associate, Gives to Ensaaf

“I give my time to Ensaaf so that I have a daily opportunity to provide a voice to the voiceless. It could have been my father who the police picked up and killed in an encounter. If my family was affected, I can't imagine having no one to hear my story.”

“If my family was affected, I can't imagine having no one to hear my story.” – Jasjit Singh Dhanoa

Help us continue our work to document disappearances and unlawful killings in Punjab. We have reached around 12,000 villages and have less than 1,000 left. We need more staff to help us process the testimonies we have collected. Please donate today. Help spread the word by participating in the #WhyIGiveToEnsaaf campaign.

Thank you!
