He persisted with his desire to help those in need by joining the British Red Cross as a volunteer and treated countless wounded soldiers at London railway stations as they returned from the battlefields. The British Red Cross awarded him a medal for his life-saving work.
Dr Alcindor also carried out research and published articles on cancer, influenza, tuberculosis and syphilis. His research set the groundwork for the correlation between poverty, low quality food and unbalanced diets in poor health.
