British-Pakistani Doctor Receives Second Highest Ranking Order Of The British Empire Award
In recognition of his services for
the homeless people, a British Pakistani doctor, Dr. Zahid Chauhan, has been awarded the Order of the British Empire (OBE). He has been named in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List.
Dr. Zahid Chauhan belongs from Mirpur, Azad Kashmir. Talking about his extraordinary work, he recalled how a homeless man in severe pain made him work for them.
I met a homeless man who was pulling out his own teeth with a pair of pliers in order to relieve severe dental pain. Since that day, I have been striving hard to ensure homeless people are provided necessary healthcare services.
Furthermore, Dr. Zahid Chauhan also thanked his family and colleagues for their support.
“I think when you receive an award of this magnitude, you are always indebted to those who have backed you – and never more than in this case. My supportive family, colleagues within the health and social care and the community have been so encouraging,” He added.
“My small Homeless-Friendly team has made a huge impact and enacted a cultural shift towards homeless rough sleepers and yes, saved lives. It is to all of these people that I dedicate this honour. It is truly theirs as much as mine,” Dr. Chauhan concluded.
It is pertinent to mention here that the Order of the British Empire is second-highest award of Britain. It is awarded to someone for making a great impact in their line of work.
