As Dubai’s number one radio DJ, Kris Fade from Virgin Radio Dubai is usually interviewing celebrities and musicians for the enjoyment of his 1.5 million radio fans.
However, when Kris travelled to Nepal
to highlight the work of The Fred Hollows Foundation, he found himself staying in a Buddhist monastery, meeting with some of the most vulnerable people in Nepal and interviewing the legendary surgeon Dr Ruit.
“Over the beginning of Ramadan I’ve been lucky enough to see first-hand what this great organisation does. I have travelled to see their work in Nepal and what I saw during that trip was truly amazing,” Kris said.
Kris shared his journey with his social media followers, including touching moments of a child seeing his father for the first time. Kris also captured Dr Ruit in surgery for Instagram TV, as well as the incredible moment several patients had their patches taken off and were able to see his face.
