Case 1


Shazia Tabasam lived a happy life in Pakistan with her husband. Her husband was a driver, a very hard worker as he used to a taxi driver in morning and a shop keeper in the evening. They lived with her father-in-law house with their 5 children. All of the sudden her husband passed away due to heart attack and her father-in-law took over the house and pushed them out. She went back to her own mother’s house along with her 5 children, but her mother was too poor that she could not afford their living cost, therefore she gave away one of her daughters to someone else so that she might have got good education.

When Hidaya team reached to her, they found them in a very miserable condition and helped her in such a way that now all of her 5 children are living again with her. Hidaya also is assisting them in getting a good education and every month the widow receives a kind amount from Hidaya Trust office.
