Shelter for Humaira's Family

A house is one of the basic needs that everyone should have. However, Safe, affordable housing is out of reach for far too many people around the world. Every day, more families find themselves in a struggle to keep a decent roof over their heads. One such family that we came across is of Humaira Bano, a widow, and a mother of two.

Humaira's eldest daughter Shahana (20) and youngest son Arshad (17) have been toiling day and night, but they make hardly enough to make ends meet. While Shahana works in a unisex gym as a helper, Arshad works on daily wage to support the family.

Having lost her husband, M. Baksh, and her eldest son M. Shamshad seven years ago, Humaira and her children have been having their share of rough times since then. The only 100 sqft cramped home owned by Humaira in Narhi village, Lucknow, has fallen down due to heavy rainfall across Uttar Pradesh. The family has been spending sleepless nights at corners of the house. Moreover, the house lacked door, which constantly troubles the mother, especially when she thinks of Shahana.

“If it was just me, it wouldn’t matter so much where I live,” she says,  “but I really want safety for Shahana,”says Humaira.

Although Humaira owns the house, but she does not have enough financial resources to rebuild their house. Approximately, 2 lakh rupees is required to finish repair the house. Through this fund raising, Paper Plane wishes to assist Humaira in building a house which she can call as home, and a place she and her children can feel secure.

Humaira's family and Paper Plane Foundation would appreciate any help in providing the family a better chance at future. Your generosity can help us to provide proper shelter for the family.
