Our Founder

My name is Javeed Akhtar. I am proud of my British values. I moved to the UK with my family aged 9 years old.

My personal life experiences will always remain, the cornerstone of an unremitting drive and commitment to do the best that I can. This drive had made me fortunate, and has allowed me the privilege to be able to give back to the world.

Throughout my life, I have always been passionate about giving back and helping those less fortunate and those in need of support.

Before I had established Helping Lives, I had participated in various charitable projects including funding many essential cataracts surgeries in Morocco, providing fresh bedding, clothing and food to orphanages in South Africa, supplying food parcels to families and communities to name a few.

This is my ongoing mission, so please support me by following my journey and volunteering if you can. My sincere gratitude and thanks to you all.

Yours Sincerely,
Javeed Akhtar
