Story of Naseem Bibi
“Please help us, it has been 14 days and we are compelled to reside in a broken tent on the embankment of this canal, there is no food, no clean drinking water and my only child is suffering from severe fever”. These were the wailings of 25 years old Naseem bibi, she was residing in a tent with her old parents, four sisters and a three years old son. Her husband left her three years back before the birth of their only child. Naseem bibi looked broken with no resources available and the mounting pressure to tackle the needs of 7 dependents with her little strengths at this worst flood in the history of Pakistan.
“There is no food available at the first place, and if some philanthropist or NGO comes with food items and clean drinking water, being girls, I and my sisters are less likely to get anything in the rush of men folks, my child asks for milk, how could I realize him that his mother is just helpless” Naseem bibi broke into tears while sharing her sufferings.
She said “we have been given with only this small tent, during the scorching heat of the day time this cannot even provide shadow to we 8 family members, my son is suffering from scabies, and my old father is too old to be of any help. Being on the embankment of a canal, mosquitoes are in abundance and my whole night passes while soothing my child with hand fan.”
Sharing her fears Naseem bibi said that she had little hope of attaining back what they had in the name of home. “Everything has been submerged into water; our house has been severely damaged and we do not have any resources to build it again. The water also blew away the dowry of my younger sisters and this is what which worries my parents most. Now there is no way we could marry my sisters off.”
At the help of GPP and ARR Japan offered to her, Naseem bibi looked contended. “I could not dare imagine that some organization would come like this and deliver me the most needed food items at my door step; I have no words but only the prayers to thank you guys, only GOD would pay back the rewards of your diligent efforts for helping the most vulnerable families like of mine at such crucial times.” With wet eyes and thanking tone she said.
