Al Qamar Award to Murabbi Abidbhai Hemani
The foundation of the World Federation is rooted in service – this is the nurturing force that fuels all progress. This force is built from the two wings of philanthropy and spirit of voluntarism. Success is never an accident – it is built on sincere efforts by selfless volunteers and generous benefactors.
As a munificent donor his contributions has been truly notable. To say we are overwhelmed with his US $5M endowment, US $1M towards the Covid Vaccine Drive, alongside his earlier contributions of US $1M to The WF Foundation Fund, would be an understatement.
But then we know that for him, philanthropy is not about money – it’s about feeling the pain of others and caring deeply about their needs. Just as the moon shines, not for its lofty brightness, but for the light it provides, we thank him not just for the monetary value of his generosity, but for his selfless acts of kindness and empathy for his fellow beings.
It is in recognition of these sentiments that the WF presents the Al Qamar Award for his exemplary philanthropic spirit to better the lives of others.
Murabbi Abidbhai, in his humility, as a man of few words and a deeply caring human being, he is an inspiration to all who know him and we thank him for supporting the WF by making a difference.
