Erum’s husband passed away in 2009 when she was 22 years old; leaving her with three daughters to take care of by herself. She had no support system from her family, so she had to go and work in a factory with an unsavory environment..
Give the Needy Foundation has supported Erum and her three daughters since 2009 with their basic necessities; so she could work and send her children to school. Without that her children would not have been exposed to any form of education and definitely exploited. These children in their school uniforms; are healthy and taken care of with the result of your support.

Update on Erum Naz and her 3 daughters January 2014
Erum still works in a factory 8 hours a day without any motivation or choice. We encouraged her to pursue her dreams by learning a new skill set. She is now going to a beauty school to learn how to be a licensed cosmetologist. All her 3 daughters are doing very well in school and want to be doctors when they grow up. It is amazing to know, no matter what your status is in life, you can never give up on your dreams.
