Ahmadiyya Peace Prize winner praised for his lifetime’s work


A long-standing colleague of  the Ahmadiyya Peace Prize winner Dr Leonid Roshal hailed his impact on the world.

Angelina Alekseeva collected the award at last weekend’s Peace Symposium at the Baitul Futuh Mosque in Morden on behalf of Dr Roshal, a leading paediatric surgeon who has treated children at disaster sites around the world.

The 68-year-old, who works with Dr. Roshal at the Clinical and Research Institute of Urgent Paediatric Surgery and Trauma in Moscow, said his guiding principle was that children should be treated by paediatric surgeons.

“The tradition was, and in many cases remains now, that at disaster sites, when there are children victims, they are given medical aid by adult specialists,” she said.
