The Sikh Nation (Sikh Quom) around the world reaches out and embraces the vision that all humans should live a safe and happy life. Sikh Nation’s annual campaign for humanity in November is designed to unite people to remember their past while donating blood and plasma to help patients in Canada.
Sikh Nation’s dedicated group of volunteers held their first blood donation event in the lower mainland of British Columbia in the late nineties. Since then, their annual event has expanded to include donation events engaging thousands of donors across Canada.
Together, Sikh Nation donors have helped save more than approximately 176,000 patient lives over the past two decades through national donation drives; and their contributions make all the difference to so many others touched by the impact of their donations.
Sikh Nation is one of Canadian Blood Services’ largest contributor to the pledge-based Partners for Life program. Together, their volunteers are playing a vital role in ensuring Canada’s national system for blood and other life essentials reflect our country’s cultural mosaic.
