We serve the whole of humanity through seva to support the vulnerable around the world

Charity Registration No. 1080374

Story

In April 2019 I traveled to Iraq with Khalsa Aid to see first hand the work that this charity does, in particular with the Yezidi community. This is a community that has been through unimaginable horrors, and the trip has impacted me hugely. Through the delivery of essential resources, the building of shelter and schools and the provision of skills training to provide people with a future, Khalsa Aid is helping to give this community a new start and a better future. If you wish to read more about Project Dignity, which is the project they run for Yezidis returning from the hands of ISIS, you can do so here: https://www.khalsaaid.org/projects/project-dignity

The work that Khalsa Aid does with the Yezidi community represents only a small portion of their work. This charity is out on the ground making a real difference to human beings from all backgrounds, all across the world.

Anyone who knows me knows that running has never been my thing, but this is the least I can do to raise some money but more importantly some awareness of the vital role that Khalsa Aid plays. Training is going well so far but this will still be a challenge for me, and I would really appreciate your support and your donations! Thank you x
