The Meer foundation has been at the forefront of supporting victims with medical, financial and legal aid as well as rehabilitation and livelihood support.

Speaking about this achievement, the Superstar said, “I’m proud to be conferred with a great University like La Trobe which has a long-standing relationship with Indian culture and impressive track record in advocating for women’s equality. I feel truly privileged to receive this Honorary Doctorate and I would like to sincerely thank La Trobe for choosing to recognize my achievements in such a humbling way.” 

The Doctor of Letters will be presented to SRK on August 9th, 2019, during his visit to Australia for the Indian Film Festival Of Melbourne.
