100. MR RAVINDER SINGH
Founder, Khalsa Aid
Ravinder Singh was born in Singapore and is the founder of Khalsa Aid. Established in 1999, Khalsa Aid is an international non-profit and relief agency founded on Sikh principles and has volunteers in many countries providing relief to victims of disaster, wars and tragic events. In April 1999, Sikhs were celebrating the 300th Anniversary of the Khalsa Panth but at the same time there was conflict in Kosovo. Ravinder launched an aid mission for the Kosovan refugees as a tribute to mark the birth of the Khalsa. This was the birth of Khalsa Aid, the first Sikh Cross-border humanitarian organisation.
