In 2010, the Foundation awarded its Lifetime Achievement Award to Dr Adnan Al Wahaidi from Gaza. Adnan was supported by the Foundation in 1996/97 for an MSc in Mother and Child Health at the Institute of Child Health, University of London. He is now Medical Director of Ard El Insaan, a Palestinian NGO which treats children suffering from malnutrition and provides free preventive and curative health and nutrition services to children from some of the poorest communities in the Gaza Strip.
The knowledge Adnan obtained in the UK enabled him to work far more effectively for Ard El Insaan and, over the years, he has had to put his skills into practice under the most difficult circumstances. During the Israeli attacks on Gaza in December 2008/January 2009, Adnan volunteered round the clock at Gaza's Shifa Hospital treating the injured and dying. It is the consequences of the continuing blockade, however, that have been most severe for babies and young children and the rates of child malnutrition and stunting have increased. Adnan has dedicated himself to alleviating the suffering of these vulnerable children and is now a recognised expert on the nutritional health situation of children in Gaza.
Mr Wafic Said presents Adnan with his prize at the Foundation's 2010 annual dinner.
