Noorali and Sabiya have offered three endowment scholarships for the nursing students at the Medicine Hat College. The first two were started in 1991 in memory of Noorali’s father, called Hussein Jina Bharwani Memorial Endowment. The first two recipients of these scholarships were in 1992. In 2001, a third scholarship was offered, called Dr. Noorali and Sabiya Bharwani Endowment. The first recipient of this scholarship was in 2002.
Scholarships 1 and 2: Hussein Jina Bharwani Memorial Endowment
Mr. Hussein Jina Bharwani died on February 4, 1991, at the age of 79 years. During Mr. Bharwani’s lifetime, he had medical and surgical problems, which required treatment on the surgical floor and ICU in different hospitals.
