Lincoln man wins international peace award

A Lincoln man has been internationally recognised for helping to bring together people from different faiths.

Subash Chellaiah was awarded the Rotary International Peace Award on Thursday July 4.

The award recognises his two decades of humanitarian community work, including helping people after they were hit by a tsunami and establishing schools in rural India.

His efforts have recently extended to Lincoln, where he has developed a multi-faith chaplaincy at the University of Lincoln.

“I feel honoured and extremely happy that what I stand for and want to achieve in the world has been recognised,” said Subash.

“I admire my parents for their sacrifice to offer me a good education, which has enabled me to pursue a PhD in Peace and Reconciliation.”

“I feel the recognition of this award will help me in my ambition to impart my dream and aspirations for the world for unity, sustainable peace and stability.”
