Ravi Singh – Humanitarian

Ravi Singh is a British Asian Sikh humanitarian and founder and CEO of the international non-profit aid and relief organization Khalsa Aid.
Khalsa Aid is an international NGO with the aim to provide humanitarian aid in disaster areas and civil conflict zones around the world. The organisation is based upon the Sikh principle of “Recognise the whole human race as one”.
Since setting up the non-profit aid and relief organisation in 1999, Ravi Singh has helped provide aid to victims of natural disasters, wars and other tragic events. He has travelled to the front-line around the world including Kosovo, Philippines, Haiti, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Turkey, Congo, Somalia, Nepal, Syria, India, Iraq, as well as help communities closer to home in the UK during the floods in Somerset and the tragedy at Grenfell Tower, London.
The BBC also created a Documentary on Ravi Singh Khalsa titled “The Selfless Sikh” which documented one of Khalsa Aid’s efforts where Ravi Singh traveled to northern Iraq to provide aid to Yazidi families fleeing their homes to escape the brutality of their government.
A passionate Sikh, humanitarian, and global leader – Ravi Singh Khalsa has accumulated many awards including Sikh of the Year, the International Sensation Award, and the Award of Excellence and Achievement.
