The #familiesinneed project in Pakistan, started up by CEO of Moonlight Trust Noushin Raja, supports women like Fozia who struggle to raise their children in staggering conditions of poverty. Working 10 hours daily in fields for a wage of less than £3 a day, these women cannot afford to pay for school uniform or books for their children. The irony, if that is what you would like to call this devastating situation, is that many women were forced to put aside their own education order to make ends meet. These families face increased hardships via the polluted drinking water, which is consumed by 80% of the village population.
It seems it cannot get any worse, but alas it does. In the village of Kasowal, many of the women suffer from Hepatitis C, and are in a situation where adequate medical care cannot be accessed. The case of an elderly man showcases this, who after being injected with an unclean needle, developed a disease which was then passed on to his 1 year old daughter. Surely, it is a great disservice for the widows, orphans and elderly to live in such horrendous conditions.
The new initiative created by Moonlight Trust aims to empower these women and families, by providing them with the materials, support and guidance they need. Every human deserves safety, security and shelter and Moonlight Trust strive to provide this to the most vulnerable members of our society.
