Afroza Ahmed Winner of the Inspirational Woman Award

alt

A SENIOR Occupational Therapist in Liverpool, Afroza was nominated for providing care “above and beyond the call of duty” and organising an emergency heating service which will save lives of the elderly across Merseyside. Over the past three years she has given a huge amount of her own time to improve the care of vulnerable elderly people who use Mossley Hill Hospital including raising £40,000 to establish a 24 hour emergency heating provision across Liverpool, which is now being replicated in Sefton and Wirral. She did this having heard about an elderly man who was found dead with his coat and cap on sitting next to a broken heater. At first Afroza bought radiators with her own money but when shops ran out of supplies she contacted Dimplex and Mersey Fire Support Network and used her charm and expertise to persuade them to donate vital supplies.
