He has shown this passion through many prominent acts of kindness and efforts to support the community, such as sponsoring, attending and holding fundraising events, establishing and developing community groups and contributing largely to worthwhile causes, while also making his pharmacy a community hub for health seminars and services which cater to the multicultural population.
