Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.” - Buddha
These words from Buddha epitomise the life of our dear friend and colleague who tragically lost his life to COVID, leaving a family behind to now navigate their lives without him.
Malinda was a man that touched so many people as a doctor and simply as a person. His gentle manner and calm demeanour brought comfort to so many patients and colleagues. He was a dedicated doctor who went above and beyond the call of duty. He will be remembered for his undying selfless attitude and his eternal optimism in the face of adversity. He worked tirelessly as a frontline NHS doctor in Accident & Emergency departments in busy London hospitals and he was at the forefront of the fight against Covid.
As his colleagues we watched him dedicate so much of his time and effort to treating and comforting patients during this pandemic. This made it even more painful to see this gentle soul admitted as a patient, and treated in the intensive care unit, in the very hospital where he worked.
His light shone brightly wherever he worked and his countless acts of kindness and compassion will never be forgotten. Malinda would want us all to look forward and celebrate his life and now that he has sadly passed away, we have set up this page to collect donations to support his cherished family. We were all blessed to have met Malinda and may his soul rest in peace forever.
Please give generously.
