Overview at a Glance Of The Eye Camps

Under the United Sikh Mission’s “Mission For Vision – Free Eye Health Care Camps in Punjab,” spanning six months from October 2023 to April 2023, more than 61 camps were organized. These camps covered a population of 500 villages in rural Punjab, providing not just medical care but a ray of hope for countless individuals.

The eye camps go beyond mere medical intervention; they represent a profound act of service, echoing the timeless Sikh principle of “Sarbat da Bhala” — the well-being of all. In a world often divided by boundaries and barriers, these camps serve as a testament to the unifying power of compassion and selfless service.

Beyond the eye camps held with the support of patrons at 61 village locations, starting in 2023, a free eye camp is held once every month in the villages of Bias Pind (District: Jalandhar), Billi Waraich (District: Jalandhar), Latala (District: Ludhiana), and Bolewal (District: Gurdaspur). The majority of the eye camps are held during the winter season in North India. People from neighbouring states of Haryana, Jammu, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttar Pradesh also visit these eye camps.

All camp management initiatives are driven by volunteers and supported by patrons. These efforts highlight the profound impact that collective goodwill can have on individual lives and entire communities. The volunteers embody the spirit of “Seva” — selfless service, which is a cornerstone of Sikh philosophy. Through their dedication, they not only restore sight but also bring light into the lives of many who have been living in darkness, both literally and metaphorically.

Founder and Chairman Rashpal Singh Khalsa has announced the initiation of work towards creating a charitable hospital, the ‘Khalsa Health Centre,’ at Village Bias Pind, Jalandhar (on the Jalandhar-Pathankot Highway). This center will provide all eye-related surgeries, dialysis, gynaecological treatment, and pharmacy services free of cost. The first phase of the hospital is expected to be completed by October 2024, before the commencement of the eye camps for the 2024-2025 season.

A dedicated website for the Khalsa Health Centre is available to provide updates and view development progress. Through this portal, supporters and well-wishers can witness the journey of transformation and the realization of a vision rooted in empathy and altruism.

Sri Kartapur Sahib Corridor Project

In 2005, the United Sikh Mission initiated efforts to open the Sri Kartarpur Sahib Marg, facilitating pilgrims from India to access Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan. A comprehensive proposal was presented to the governments of India and Pakistan in 2011, with John W. McDonald, former US Ambassador to the UN, advising the project. After persistent advocacy and the support of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the corridor was inaugurated in 2019 on the 550th Birth Anniversary of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. This historic achievement, detailed in “Heartfelt – The Legacy of Faith,” underscores the mission’s dedication to addressing the Sikh community’s cultural and religious needs.
