“Then, I was five years old and suffered hepatitis which was severe. So many children like me had various ailments too and that was during the civil war in 1968.
“But, God used the Red Cross members who worked so hard to treat all the children including me and the majority of us were saved. After I was treated, I developed much love for Red Cross Society as I saw their action as a service to God and humanity.
“This led to my promise to be a member of the Red Cross as I grew older so that I can serve others. I worked so effectively in my school as a member of the Red Cross, trying as much as I could to meet the needs of students’ healthcare and this formed the vision to build Greenlife Pharmaceuticals.”
