Khalsa Aid (KA) is primarily a humanitarian relief agency, based on the teachings of the Sikh Gurus who preached well being of all humanity. Since the launch of KA in 1999 we have provided aid in many different disasters, this has only been possible due to the generosity of the Sikh community worldwide but mostly funded by the UK based Sikhs. The idea behind KA has been to provide cross border humanitarian relief and also to raise awareness of global relief and development work.
There are many obstacles in relief work but the main one is corruption especially in the developing world. It’s very frustrating and unfortunate that during any disasters there will be people trying to make a ‘fast buck’ out of misery of the already downtrodden victims. Khalsa Aid have never given cash to any groups or individuals but have carried out our own assessments by their relief team and then appointed local contractors and suppliers. They believe that our donors expect us to be diligent and responsible for every penny that they donate.
