    World renowned Muslim chest consultant Professor Mohammed Munavvar joined 70 colleagues at Preston Hospital in one day fast to raise funds for the Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

    “About three years ago, some of Professor Munavvar’s colleagues asked if he would mind if they joined him fasting for a day during Ramadan just to see what it was like and he suggested they support Rosemere Cancer Foundation in the process,” Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s Chief Officer Dan Hill told Asian Image.

    “More of his colleagues wanted to become involved and so last year, Professor Munavvar decided to turn the fast into a fundraising event for Rosemere Cancer Foundation, which has funded diagnostic equipment for him.

    “This year’s event was a grand success and I can see it getting bigger and bigger in the years to come.”

    Along with Hill, those who took part in the fast were Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s Chief Medical Director Dr Gerry Skailes and its Chief Nursing Officer Sarah Cullen and its two imams Khalid Ibrahim and Naeem Toorawa.

    Completing the fast, Professor Munavvar invited all participants to the dining area within the Royal Preston Hospital’s Education Centre 1.

    There he helped to serve fresh food, along with his colleagues and the hospital’s Imams.

    Professor Munavvar is chair of the European Respiratory Society’s Interventional Pulmonology Group. He is also the immediate past president of the European Association of Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology and a former president of the British Thoracic Society.

    Islamic Shari`ah encourages generosity and charity. Last August, Lancashire Muslims raised £20,000 to support East Lancashire Hospice.
