Mohd. Sharif from Uttar Pradesh was awarded the Social Act of Courage Award at the 2012 Godfrey Phillips National Bravery Awards.


Mohd. Sharif is a Messiah for the poor and the needy. He has dedicated his life to the service of poor patients in hospitals. A cycle mechanic by profession, Mohd Sharif has seen tragedy and grief from close quarters. He could not perform his son's last rites as he went missing a month before his death.

The unfortunate happening made him stronger. He decided that he would do his utmost not to let anyone suffer death in anonymity.

He is meticulous. His day starts early at about 5.00 a.m. He goes to city hospital to give wash to all those patients who have no attendant or family member to look after. He feeds these patients and assists the nurse in giving them medicines. He has become a part of hospital staff.

Then, he attends to his work of repairing cycles and returns to hospital after closing his shop. He stays in hospital till late in night.

Mohd. Sharif has also taken upon himself the responsibility of performing last rites of unclaimed bodies in town. Religion of deceased is of little consequence to him.

He finances his social work by asking for donations by visiting people. During Ramzan month he makes special efforts to collect funds.
