Khalsa Aid International Who We Are & What We Do Khalsa Aid is a UK based humanitarian relief charity providing support around the world to victims of natural and man-made disasters such as floods, earthquakes, famine and war. Our team is often one of the first on the scene to help distribute food, water, clothing, medical and sanitation supplies. We fund and build semi-permanent shelters, if needed anything that’s required in those early days to save lives, reduce people’s immediate suffering and help maintain their dignity. The charity was founded by Ravi Singh, who was struck by the plight of the refugees in Kosovo in 1999. That year also marked the 300th birth anniversary of the Khalsa, an opportunity for the community to reflect on the core teachings of their faith. Ravi saw the footage of the Kosovan refugees on the news and was inspired by one Sikhi ideology in particular, Sarbat da Bhalla, meaning well-being for all, recognising the humanity in us all and reaching out to those in need, regardless of race, religion, borders. At the time of the celebrations across the UK, and around the world, there were terrible images on the news of refugees struggling to cross the cold and mountainous border to reach a safer and peaceful Albania Khalsa Aid was born. Whilst the inspiration for the charity stems from a strong belief in the Sikh principles, our work is by no means restricted to the Sikh community. Khalsa Aid became the first ever cross-border international humanitarian aid organisation based on the Sikh principles. Since 1999, we have been able to provide crucial aid to millions of people around the world: from victims of the Yemen Civil War to refugees landing on the shores of Greece from the Middle East and, more recently, the Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar seeking refuge in Bangladesh, to earthquake, flood and hurricane stricken areas in Nepal, Australia, and the Caribbean.
