Summary: This single mother had a 24x7 job - taking care of a daughter who was confined to a wheelchair. She worked as a maid at her own sister's place, ran errands, took odd jobs and did her best to raise her daughter who can only express her gratitude by helping her mother take the first vacation of her life.
I am Ghausiya Nishat. I am a girl with Syringomyelia. All my life, I have needed constant support to move around. I cannot travel in a normal cab. A wheel-chair friendly cabs and places have been my only scope to travel.
My Support, My Strength, My Mother
Meet my mother, Shayeda. She might be 48 or 49 but very young at heart. I have seen her struggle through my childhood. Doing all the house work at her sister's house, working in small tailor houses designing and stitching clothes. Despite these odd jobs and erratic timings that followed, she was still there for me. Every step of the way! Today, it is because of her efforts and hard work, I am a working professional in a good company.
Celebrating My Mother's Birthday For The Very First Time
March is my mother's birthday month
. We did not know about it all these years let alone celebrating it. I want to celebrate it and make her feel really special. I want to thank her for everything she did for me and let her know that she is the best mother in the world! This March, I would like to gift her, the very first vacation of her life. I'd like her to go to Ooty for a few days.
It has been her favorite place for the longest time.
How Can You Help?
Though I have a job, I am just an intern. I cannot fully afford the expenses a trip to Ooty demands
. But with your help and support, I can make this happen! Help me put a smile on my mother's face. Contribute now.
