Founder, Mr. David Harilela was inspired by the story of a German doctor, Hendrik Wuebben, whose story of generosity and compassion motivated David to create the award.
dealing in drugs or working on small labouring jobs in town. Hendrik felt that this was a place that needed help and began working with no pay, and is now the head of the emergency room. He has been assaulted and robbed a dozen times, often by the same patients he has treated. He has had knives and guns drawn on him and has been attacked by a hit man on the order of drug traffickers. But despite this, he works tirelessly, completely devoted to his cause.
It is our hope that with the development of THE ONE award, we can continue to recognise individuals of such selfless compassion.
