For some people, it is considered a great honor to just have even one important role in their life. However, Shafik Sachedina actually has two important roles in his life. Not only that, but he does both of them in an extremely elite fashion.
Shafik Sachedina is both the owner and chairperson of Sussex Healthcare and a highly noted volunteer for the Institute of Ismaili Studies. There is no question that he is an extremely generous individual who always strives to give back to his community.
How is he generous? Well, for starters, he is generous with his time. As a committee member for The Institute of Ismaili Studies, he is a member of many important governing bodies within the organization. This would include being a member of the board of directors, being the Head of Jamati Institutions with Agha Khan (the founding body of the institute), and serving as the general secretary. Shafik Sachedina also has an interrelated post where he is the head of diplomatic affairs at Aiglemont, France. So yes, he is definitely a generous and busy man to say the least.

Shafik Sachedina has also been generous in his personal medical practice. From the moment he entered the University of London, his professors knew he would be something special. Many individuals would use their talents simply to make money for themselves, but not Shafik Sachedina. He qualified as a dental surgeon in 1975, and since then he has demonstrated the same drive and determination to help his patients as he does everywhere else.
Finally, he is generous with providing to the needy. He literally goes above and beyond the call of duty to help people in any way that he can. This would include the fact that Shafik Sachedina does not receive even one dime for his service to the Institute of Ismaili Studies. Nothing. Zilch. Nada. The man just cares about people, and it is a worldview he has held for literally the last four decades.
