Bhasker is an international award winning BBC cameraman who has risked his life to highlight the poor of the world. He has filmed the devastating plight of children in Eastern Europe, Africa and Asia which in many cases has led to Governments being forced to take postive action. In Albania, Bhasker`s pictures showed the world the tragedy of disabled children living in degrading conditions. His work led to national newspaper campaigns and the president of the country honouring him with nationa`s highest civilian honour - the Mother Teresa Award. Bhasker has won other prizes including one from Amnesty International for his work in Rwanda. Whilst filming the Bhuj earthquake in Gujarat in 2001, he was so shocked at the plight of the children that he raised thousands of pounds to set up a children`s school in the earthquake hit area. He worked with the Rushey Mead School in Leicester which he attended as a child. And now there is also a Rushey Mead School in Bhuj. The school offers education for the poorest of the poor and annually sends around 16 young people from the UK to do work experience at the school. It is a life enhancing experience for all involved. Bhasker works tirelessly for the local communities in the UK. He campaigns for the causes he believes in, and does not talk too much about himself. He truly is one of the silen heroes and deserves a chance to carry the Olympic torch. He has worked in over 100 countries The civilian award is the Order Of Mother Teresa The funds were raised with the help of other people helping as well.
