Khalsa Aid, as an organisation is based upon the Sikh principle of "Recognise the whole human race as one". Over the past few months, Khalsa Aid distributed free food to thousands of truck drivers stranded on the UK-France border that was closed after the new strain of coronavirus was found in the United Kingdom on the Christmas Eve 2020.

Last month, the organisation also installed 25-foot massager machines at Singhu border for farmers who were protesting against the Centre's three agricultural laws. The volunteers of the organisation helped farmers with food and other essential items during the ongoing protest, including organising langar services.
