Currently a senior manager of sales operations and strategy at Abbott Laboratories, Inc., Zariq Siddiqui has worked at the Chicago-based company for over 15 years. A charitable individual, Zariq Siddiqui supports the work of several organizations, including Unbound, a nonprofit group formerly known as the Christian Foundation for Children and Aging that supports children and families in underserved communities throughout the world.
Unbound joined the United Nations and a number of other organizations in celebrating World Toilet Day on November 19th, 2014. The United Nations designated that date 2013 in order to raise awareness about the 2.5 billion people who do not have access to improved sanitary facilities.
A portion of that large number includes many of the individuals that Unbound serves through its sponsorship and direct-giving programs. In addition to helping people build sanitary toilets and water-filtration systems, Unbound uses donations collected from these programs to implement hygiene education initiatives and provide nutrition supplements and vitamins to individuals affected by chronic diseases, such as HIV/AIDS.
