“I feel honoured to be awarded a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) for Wellbeing and Community Work in Her Majesty The Queen’s New Years Honours 2021 List. The 20 years of health and community work have been the most rewarding of my life.

He worked with local charities to provide care parcels with essential items for the homeless and delivered meals to NHS frontline staff and the vulnerable.
In 2017 he identified the increasing number of heart attacks within high-risk ethnic minority groups and co-founded the first national charity that provides free Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) training to community groups in four South Asian languages.
