Sikh Nation donors are committed to supporting patients and Canada’s Lifeline. Sixty per cent of their donations each year happen outside of November, as many Sikh Nation members are regular donors.
Sukhdeep Singh has been a volunteer with the Sikh Nation initiative since its inception. “By helping to save lives we want to commemorate those who lost their lives,” he said.
“The campaign is designed to bring people together by saving the lives of our fellow Canadians,” says Jastej Kaur of Blood Donation by Sikh Nation. “Through this partnership, the Sikh community in Canada has come out in droves and many have gone on to become regular blood donors.”
