International Humanitarian Hero – Dr. Azad K. Anand, MD

Dr. Anand is an accomplished doctor, businessman, community leader and humanitarian who believes that one becomes a physician because they have the heart to be of service to humanity. While traveling in Africa, Dr. Anand learned of a high incidence of renal disease in Zimbabwe and the lack of proper treatment options available there like Dialysis.  Considering how he could help this community, he sought to forge a partnership with the Zimbabwe Red Cross Society. Dr. Anand and the Zimbabwe Red Cross are working together to open a dialysis center in one of the organization’s existing medical centers in the capital, Harare.
