Dr. Syed, Founder Chairman of World Humanitarian Drive, shares his contributions during the lockdown
I am a British Indian Global Peace Activist, Writer, and Entrepreneur. I was born in Tamil Nadu, India and migrated in my teens to the U.K.
My name is Dr. Abdul Basit Syed, and I am the Founder and Chairman of an Internation NGO "World Humanitarian Drive". I have been accredited with a number of Peace, Education, and Trade Harmony initiatives globally, for which I was honoured as "International Ambassador" of Croydon, Mayor U.K, and "Ambassador for Peace" by Universal Peace Federation U.K.
I am strongly inspired by my Grandfather PKS Kattuwa Mohaiyadeen. He was an Indian Freedom fighter and a leader who dedicated his life to the service of the community. As a global Peace Activist, I had the opportunity to serve humanity during the lockdown. WHD was able to put forth 20 events globally. The events were to give hope and promote our noble visions of Peace, Education, and Trade Harmony.
Our four global initiatives are:
Moralday.com - Initiative to promote morality as the foundation of peace and happiness in the world. We are requesting the UN to declare the 2nd of September as World Moral Day.
thesciencebazaar.com - Initiative to bring new innovations for the betterment of humanity.
trade4peace.com - Initiative to bring trade harmony among individuals and nations by promoting trade, as a pathway for Peace. Honouring The Honourable - Initiative to recognize and honour individuals and organisations to inspire humanity.
During the lockdown 2020, we have created more than a million Humanitarian impressions of touching hearts with many positive stories to share with our events across the globe. We launched an event "Covid Times Poetry" to use poems as a tool to build hope and peace. We received 3000+ poems, from 25 countries in 16 languages. People came together regardless of nationalities, languages, or any other barriers only for the sake of universal brotherhood. In this event, the former President of Trinidad & Tobago said, "Always Treat People, Like People."
Peace, Education, and Trade Harmony are 3 key visions of the organisation. I generally believe that with the good finances from trade harmony, one can get a good education;
good education builds good minds to promote good deeds, for a lasting
Peace in the world.
One piece of advice that always inspires me is from the former President of India Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. He said, “Reach the unreachable, Dream the impossible”.
All in all, I would like to say - “The Will of Nature, is to live with Love”.
You Humanity pays respect and gratitude to Dr. Abdul Basit Syed for going above and beyond to contribute towards Humanity.
