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.

The Medical Director, Dr Adnan Al-Wahaidi, describes the consequences of the siege and closure of the Gaza Strip as "Very severe for babies and young children," especially with regard to child stunting due to prolonged exposure to malnutrition.According to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics, 10.2% of children in the Gaza Strip are now suffering stunted growth due to chronic malnutrition.However, the World Food Program (WFP) is currently unable to provide 84,000 of its poorest beneficiaries with their full aid rations due to the continued siege and closure of Gaza.Dr Al-Wahaidi describes the current food table in the Gaza Strip as "Severely deficient because of the siege and closure."
In addition to denials of the rights to medication, appropriate medical facilities, food, fuel and water, Israel is also denying children in the Gaza Strip their right to education.
