Our dear friend Mr Abdul Hameed (everyone calls him Maulana) of Lakshadweep won the national award for benevolence. Maulana received the award from the Governor of Lakshadweep on Republic Day, 26 January 2020.
Lakshadweep is an archipelago of islands off the South west coast of India which form a union territory of India. Maulana and team entered into a partnership with Pallium India to set up a palliative care service in the capital of Lakshadweep, Kavaratti, which later he was successful in spreading to other islands.
Congratulations, Maulana. We are proud to be your fellow travellers.
