Ali Clark-Morris receives Alf Morris Award

In recognition of her work at The Village of Hope Ali has been award the Alf Morris Award by the Royal College of Podiatry.

As many of you know Alison has been supporting the Village of Hope since 2017. Her activity has included making regular visits to Dehli taking other professionals with her. Education has been the route of her visits emphasising the  importance of good foot health. As part of her activity she introduced a wound prevention programme, generated funds to allow for extra equipment for the bandaging units and an assistant to continue her work. In addition more than 50 tricycles were bought and distributed through her fund raising.

From the Royal College of Podiatry website:-

“The Alf Morris Award
This award has been established in honour of the late President of the RCPod, The Rt Hon Lord Morris of Manchester AO QSO, who died in 2012. The award reflects Lord Morris’s strong social conscience and the difference he made to the lives of ordinary, disadvantaged people. Lord Morris was a renowned campaigner and pioneer on behalf of the disabled. In 1970, his work led to the first disability rights legislation entitled The Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act which sought to give people with disabilities equal opportunities in society and was the world’s first such legislation. The award is conferred upon members, fellows, or podiatry service teams who have made an exceptional, altruistic, personal or team contribution to the podiatric care of disadvantaged individuals or communities in the United Kingdom or abroad. This may include service to those with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, or in support of military veterans, reflecting the legislative and policy achievements in these areas made by Lord Morris.”

Ali’s work continues and hopefully a trip to India will be possible next year. If you would like to contribute to the Village of Hope Ali’s Just Giving page is via this link.
