We are very pleased to announce that Dr. Nancy Chee, our volunteer occupational and hand therapist, and Dr. Shafquat Khundkar, director of our Surgical Outreach Program in Bangladesh, have been selected as recipients of The REAL Awards.
Created by Save the Children and the Frontline Health Workers Coalition, The REAL Awards is a first-of-its-kind global awards program designed for society to honor and show respect to health workers. The main awards presentation will take place in Washington, DC, in April.
We could not be more thrilled that not one but two of our dedicated health workers have been selected for this honor! Thank you to everyone who voted for our nominees, and please join us in congratulating both Shafquat and Nancy.
To learn more, take a look at the honoree pages for Nancy and Shafquat, and stay tuned for updates from the awards ceremony later this spring.
