Recognizing the need for improved access to information amidst the coronavirus pandemic, Shah Nawaz set out to bolster public health information and to provide medical supplies to communities in Aishmuqam, Kashmir.
Shah used loudspeakers from the mosques in villages surrounding the township to inform citizens on the importance of public health precautions and safety measures, gradually taking to sermons and writings. Through these various methods of outreach, he garnered support from community leaders and Imams alike. Together, they joined in to strengthen awareness of the global health crisis and advise local citizens on necessary precautions to protect one another and their communities.
Shah’s dedication to improving access to critical public health information, engaging youth and community leaders alike, and disseminating supplies to those in remote areas demonstrates his leadership and commitment to combatting COVID-19 and serving those most in need.
