A Lewisham man is walking 100 miles in just ten days while fasting during Ramadan to raise funds for the NHS.

Mfa Zaman, who was previously homeless and a victim of modern slavery in the UK, was inspired to feed rough sleepers remaining on the street at the start of lockdown.

After volunteering as an ambassador at the newly built Nightingale Hospital, he decided to emulate Captain Tom Moore by walking a great distance for the NHS.

Mr Zaman said: "We all are human and it is our first identity.

"We are people for other people not only in good time but difficult time.

"During this pandemic, once everything had lockdown, I was really helpless.

"But it knocked my mind and remembered those homeless people.

"At the NHS Nightingale; we supported the doctors, nurses, medial specialist and important personals through their training to fight against coronavirus so they would be ready to help and support the NHS.

"I had seen how our NHS heroes are serving the people to save their life.

"So I took another challenge to help our NHS."

Mr Zaman has so far walked 50 miles in 5 days, with 71,722 steps.

In 2017, he walked 616 miles from Yorkshire to London, also while fasting, on behalf of Jo Cox Foundation and Eden Project.
