A 56-year-old man of Wailevu says he has developed a passion for helping people since his childhood days.

Mohammed Hamid, a social worker, said seeing people in need prompted him to do something with his life by the time he was 10 years of age.

“I saw a lot of people in need and that really moved me as a kid,” said Mr Hamid reflecting on his own childhood.

“I know what it feels like to face the harshness of life.

“Seeing my fellow members of society in need and then not do anything about it is something I cannot let slip by,” he said.

Mr Hamid said deciding on following a path of humbleness and being generous to mankind were the best decisions he had made in his life.

He soon learned that joy was in giving back to the society.

“I had a special satisfaction in my heart every time I could make someone smile,” he said.

Having also visited countries like India, Pakistan, the United States of America, Singapore and Malaysia, Mr Hamid said that sharing his experiences with people from all over the world was something remarkable for him.

“There are so many people in need of help and a little help from anyone could go a long way,” he said.

“I was also involved in social work in Pakistan helping families in need.”

His effort was appreciated by the Raiderz Charity Club for the assistance provided during the club’s activities this year.

While presenting a certificate of appreciation, Raiderz Charity Club vice president, Rajneel Maharaj said the assistance provided by Mr Hamid was noteworthy.

“His only aim has been to help people rather than being rewarded for what he does,” Mr Maharaj said.

“The club is grateful for the assistance provided by Mr Hamid in making the clubs activities a success.”

Meanwhile Mr Hamid’s message to Fijians is to learn to give back to the society.

He is happily married with three children.
