KARACHI: A Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) crew, Touheed Daudpota, who was spotted soothing a baby on-flight has been honoured by a United Nations (UN) body.
The achievement was shared from the official Twitter account of the PIA.
It said that Touheed Daudpota was declared the ‘He for She’ champion by the UN Women Pakistan, an entity for gender equality and women’s empowerment.
He was honoured for displaying empathy, gender sensitivity, respect and care to a woman passenger, the PIA said while terming the act as upholding long traditions of the national flag carrier.
It is pertinent to mention here that a senior flight attendant on a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight was hailed on social media after his pictures of helping a mother soothe her crying baby during a flight went viral.
Touheed, the cabin crew manager on board, carried the baby in his arms and walked up and down the aisle to help the baby fall asleep.
This gesture of the PIA cabin crew surprised many people as the national flag carrier’s flight was moving towards Karachi from Islamabad.
