Tejinder Pal Singh, a cabbie in Australia, feeds the homeless and the needy every last Sunday of the Month & has been named as Australian of the Day

An Indian-origin Sikh cab driver has been titled as ‘Australian of the Day’ for helping and feeding the homeless in Darwin for the past three years.
Tejinder Pal Singh has devoted the last Sunday of every month to feed the poor and homeless in North Darwin after his working hours.
30 kgs of Indian cuisine food is cooked to be served to the needy people. “I do something for homeless people, so they get more energy so they’re happy. My religion says 10 percent of income goes toward needy and poor people – no matter (whether) they belong to your religion or any other religion”, Singh said.

His van has a message that reads, "Free Indian food for hungry and needy people, Provider Sikh family”. 

From the past 35 years, Commonwealth Bank has sponsored Australian of the year awards for appreciating extraordinary Australians who make their country proud.
