It is sometimes hard to imagine the hardships that Nazia has faced in her life. Forced into an arranged marriage, she found herself pregnant at the age of 16. Her husband abandoned by her and her son by the time she reached 18. Faced with the fear of not being able to provide for her family, Nazia was left with limited options – until Anchal.
During our most recent trip to India, Nazia conveyed that she had been struggling with her son’s health ever since he was diagnosed with tuberculosis this year. She tearfully spoke about his medical expenses and feelings of despair. However, despite the extreme challenges, Nazia always expresses her gratitude for the Anchal community and support she has received from the stability in her job.
“I have only been able to afford my son’s medical expenses because of Anchal.”
Nazia is a critical member of the Anchal team and we hope to secure her sponsorship for 2017. We invite you to read more about Nazia here and hope you become inspired by her story.*Please note, all donations are processed through Stripe.
