Khalsa Aid, the United Kingdom-based international non-profit humanitarian organisation, has been officially nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for their humanitarian work.
The organisation took to social media on Monday to announce that their official nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize by Canadian MP Tim Uppal, Mayor of Brampton Patrick Brown, and the MPP for Brampton South Prabmeet Singh Sarkaria.
While announcing their nomination, Khalsa Aid Canada tweeted, “We are completely humbled to receive the Nobel Peace Prize nomination from @TimUppal, @patrickbrownont and @PrabSarkaria.”
Ravinder Singh, Founder/CEO of Khalsa Aid, took it to his Twitter handle and tweeted, “Thank you for this historical nomination for the @NobelPrize! The dedication and compassion of our volunteers is simply amazing. We are all humbled by this nomination.”
Khalsa Aid was founded in 1999 by Ravinder Singh with a simple idea of taking the Sikh concept of langar across the globe. Khalsa Aid has provided help and aid in civil, conflict and disaster-prone zones across the world for over two decades now.
In December last year, the Khalsa Aid had set up a Kisan Mall at the Tikri border to provide daily use items free of cost to protesting farmers. The racks were stocked with toothbrushes, soaps, shampoo, combs, mufflers, heating pads, knee caps, thermal suits, shawls, and blankets, among other things.
