AK tells us:

"ADD International is a true advocate of persons with disabilities and their organisations. I was a beneficiary of ADD International's work in the early nineties and am aware of the organisation's commitment to improving the quality of life of persons with disabilities. As Chair, I hope to contribute to the achievement of ADD's vision and mission building on the work of the great leaders and personnel that have come before me.

I hope to open doors for ADD and ensure that the organisation achieves stability, increased resources and all-round sustainability.

I want to position ADD to actively support the implementation of all articles of the Sustainable Development Goals and to create alliances/partnerships in this regard."

Chief Executive, Jimmy Innes says:

I am delighted that AK has been appointed as the new Chair of ADD International. As a still new Chief Executive myself, it is very exciting to now work with a man of such stature as AK. I look forward to working under his leadership and am sure that we will make a good partnership for the future direction of the organisation. I also express my gratitude and appreciation for all that our outgoing Chair – Saghir Alam – has achieved for ADD; his contributions over many years have shaped and strengthened ADD as a leading organisation in the field of international disability rights and inclusion.”
