Salaam everyone,

Sumarah is a widow who is only 22 years old, with 2 young children. She was forcefully kicked out of her inlaws home after her husband died in a car accident. This campaign is dedicated to Sumarah and her 2 very young children who are currently facing homelessness in Pakistan and need urgent assistance for: shelter, food, medical aid, toiletries, hygienic essentials, education for the children, and other necessities.

SUMARAH'S STORY:

When Sumarah was 13, her father (sole breadwinner of the family) passed away, which left her family no choice, but to marry her off at a very young age for her survival. She also has 2 children, one who is a beautiful 5 year old girl, and the other is a very cute 6 year old boy. Her husband died in a car accident just last year, which resulted in her forceful expulsion from her in-laws home as “it is not their responsibility to care for her or the children.” Sumarah moved into 1 tiny cramped room with her children, and 5 other people. The weather is over 40 degrees Celsius in Pakistan, and this makes the conditions of the room even more unbearable. The conditions of the room are neither safe, nor sustainable.

In approximately 1.5 months, she will be forced out of that room as well, because of forceful evictions. When I learned more about Sumarah and her heartbreaking story, I was shocked at the atrocious conditions she was living in, and am worried for her and her children’s health and safety. Sumarah and her children have a number of health conditions surfacing that she cannot afford to treat, nor afford the proper medications to alleviate the pain. They do not have proper nourishment, because of the food they eat, which is limited to 1 small meal a day.

What this campaign can accomplish:

I am looking to help Sumarah with your help in any way that we can to create some change. There are several purposes of this campaign:

  • I want to raise funds for Sumarah to move into a safer room without the presence of strangers and have some more space.
  • Items for hygiene: toilet paper, soap, deodorant, pads, etc.
  • Her children to be placed in school every month: (approximately 40 dollars total a month)
  • Medical necessities: doctors appointments, medicine, bandages, etc.
  • Food/groceries
  • Proper shoes, underwear, socks, etc.
  • AC cooling system

Any sort of donation will help, because of the conversion rate here in Pakistan from Canadian to Pakistani currency. 10 dollars can provide groceries for a week for the family. 20 dollars can provide education for one child for a whole month. 130 dollars is an entire months worth of salary here in Pakistan. This can put things into perspective for you all. Anything can go such a long way and make a difference. So please help me out in trying to change whatever we can for Sumarah and her children. If you cannot donate, then please share this with as many people as you can.

May God reward you all for being so selfless. Ameen.
