Sujathullah always wanted to serve humanity since childhood. His parents taught him the value of humanness from an early age. Since he was born in a joint family, Sujathullah was aware of the importance of helping each other and living together in harmony.
Mohammed Shujatullah found Humanity First Foundation in 2016, and he fed the poor with his own money. “I saw poor people longing for food in Secunderabad railway station. I felt that I should feed them. When they saw food in my hands, they rushed towards me”, he said to The Logical Indian.
“People living with comforts hardly realise the pain and suffering of the hungry. However, we observe many people living around us not having sufficient food to lead a healthy life, which is the primary right of every human being,” says Sujathullah. With the help of friends and family, he now feeds 700 to 1000 people every day, free of cost. The foundation has no permanent volunteers but people often show the willingness to help him. Shujatullah leads the initiative and manages to get the volunteers each time. “We get donations from facebook groups and generous people”, he added.
Shujatullah, under his Humanity First Foundation, gives free breakfast to patients in two hospitals – Nilofer Children’s hospital and Koti maternity hospital, Hyderabad. “We provide food for 700 to 1000 people every day around the hospital premise. My friends and family also extend their full support,” says Shujatullah.
Service in Orphanage and Home for disabled
Humanity First Foundation volunteers visit orphanages and homes for the differently-abled and distribute materials such as rice, oil, salt, and garlic. For children, they gift toys and chocolates.
They also conduct medical camps in slum areas. Doctors including general physicians and dentists visit the regions and perform necessary health checkups. Free medicines are also distributed during these medical camps. Shujatullah says many people had been diagnosed with diabetes and hypertension through these camps.
Distribution of blankets
Humanity First foundation has saved 500 people from the harshness of the climate during the winter season, providing them blankets for free.
A Pharm D student from Sultan Ul Uloom College of Pharmacy, Hyderabad, Sujathullah sets an example to the world to serve humanity selflessly. His mission is to work for the needy irrespective of their gender, caste, race or religion.
