Shakeela Bibi Extends Warm Thanks Towards AWF for Sewing Machine

Meet Shakeela Bibi – a resilient widow living in Mithi who faced immense challenges in providing for her family of six after the unfortunate loss of her husband. With no breadwinner in the family, Shakeela struggled to make ends meet and secure a respectable income source to support her children. As a widow, she faced societal challenges and limited access to resources, making her financial situation even more precarious.

Shakeela shared her daily struggles:

“My name is Shakeela Bibi, and I reside in Mithi with my children. After the loss of my husband, life has been incredibly challenging for us. Providing for my family and ensuring their well-being has been a constant struggle. As a widow, I face societal hurdles in finding work, and we rely heavily on financial aid for our survival.”

With the support of compassionate donors, Al-Wahab Foundation provided Shakeela with a sewing machine. This simple yet impactful gesture opened new doors of opportunity for Shakeela, allowing her to start her own tailoring business and generate a sustainable income for her family.

The Women Empowerment Project not only offered Shakeela a chance to support her family financially but also equipped her with the skills and tools to face societal challenges with confidence. The initiative fosters independence and dignity among widows, enabling them to become self-reliant and break free from the cycle of poverty.

Shakeela expressed her heartfelt gratitude to Al-Wahab Foundation:

” I am greatly thankful to Al-Wahab Foundation and Mufti Abdul Wahab for providing assistance during this difficult time in my life. The sewing machine they provided has been a lifeline for my family as now I can stitch the clothes of the people living around and make accessories to sell in the local market that will ultimately give me a good outcome in the form of respectable income to fulfil my family’s needs. With this opportunity, I can now earn a respectable income and provide for my children. I literally have no words to express my gratitude for this kind-heartedness shown to help me by giving me this opportunity to earn for my family. Jazak Allah for this support to Mufti Abdul Wahab and Al-Wahab Foundation team.”
