Shaista’s father had always encouraged her to pursue medicine, and from a young age she knew nothing else except that one day she would be a doctor. But her world was crushed when her father died. She not only lost her role model, but also the opportunity to continue her education. Her widowed mother could no longer afford basic necessities let alone school fees. Thanks to a generous sponsor, she was saved from having to work, and went on to finish high school with top marks securing a university scholarship. Today, she is studying medicine, and is well on the way to achieving her late father’s dream. You can save an orphan child too. Learn more about sponsoring an orphan in Ramadan –
