Shabnum Imtiyaz , 38-year old widow lost her husband four years back. Shabnum has two daughters and a son . The poor lady has no source of income and is dependent upon community help (charity & donations). Her relatives, neighbors & other factions of locality take care of her and children’s expenses. This already poor widow lost all her be-longings to flood – bedding, clothes, books, food items , matting everything . CHINAR under its relief distribution pro-gram provided Shabnam with both food and winter kits.
“I had no winter supplies, no pherans, no kangris. Flood took away them all. I had no idea how to survive through this harsh winter. I have small children to take care of. I am very thankful to your organization for all the stuff,” says Shabnum.
