Naik was in profound disbelief when she first got the call from none other than the German Consul General Rainer Schmeidchen, in May, to inform her of this wonderful news.
“Not only caring the patients, I also go out to create awareness on TB. As the in-charge, I even need to look after the staff attendance and whether patients are getting their medicines and meal properly. It’s a huge responsibility” – Monika Nair was quoted telling The Times of India.
Naik has not cleared high school and has never been to any university, but that did not stop her from giving back to the society. Earlier in her life, she was a para-medical volunteer, but now she manages the Batra St Thomas Home Welfare Society. Her service demands nothing and is selfless beyond comparison. This win of hers stands witness to that.
