Acceptance of every human being for plainly just being another human, ignoring and abolishing biased social views, prejudice, and racism in the process. Being a humanitarian is being able to recognize humanity amongst all of us, once we accept all humans have same equal desires and basic needs, the work itself is just a natural extension. It is of utmost importance that one should always respect and recognize human dignity and then conduct humanitarian work which focuses on human dignity.

Some 25 years back I found Rotary. When asked why I chosen this role, my reply was “because working for humanity is universal, it holds no boundaries, no cultures and no religion; it brings me closer to people who are also involved in the same field and gives me great pleasure to work with them.”

Aziz has lead Rotary’s polio eradication efforts in Pakistan for the past several years, has worked closely with partners and stakeholders, including WHO, UNICEF, the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI), government officials, religious scholars, celebrities, and corporate executives from multinational companies and Rotarians from around the world.
