What do people have to say about this?

It comes across as hollow and perfunctory; a cynical, halfhearted "chal lailo" afterthought of a gesture performed to placate Sikhs who are critical of his operation. Something that can be weaponised by his sycophants when they feel the need to defend Sai Ravi.

Most people realise the CEO would much rather be photographed sidling up to a bunch of cute Ethiopian kids in a dusty village, or building figurative interfaith bridges with salwaar-kameez-and-topi wearing Musleh in some Islamic backwater somewhere. Those two groups get clicks, plaudits, and adulation in the West. Shifty-eyed, blue-turbanned men and dark-skinned Punjabi women in garish clothes being handed charity would seem like the CEO was attending a family get-together. Nobody cares about it.

Khalsa Aid has no business helping Muslims anywhere. They 5hit out enough of each other across the world that it's monumentally absurd for a Sikh organisation to ever involve themselves in Islamic charity work. It's akin to a man neglecting to feed his own starving family and offspring because there's a bigger family across the street who everyone else considers to be the defacto charity case that needs patronising even though the latter could technically provide for themselves if they so desired.

Does it not seem like that sikhs suffer from a lot of self hate. Who helps others when their own are dying?

It's built into the foundations of the religion, no pun intended. It's kind of difficult to avoid without being dismissed as un-Sikh.
