Dear Mrs Rehana Hasan, Assalamalekum !

The least a person can do is to empathise with the other. Empathy is a rare and a beautiful quality a person can possess. I believe that every human is unique and carries a distinct kindness that needs to be awakened. There is greater good to be done everywhere in every part of the society. There is a consciousness in all persons which makes them aware of their rights and responsibilities. But it is latent and needs to be found. Talking is one such way that awakens the conscience. People let out what they are storing within and can thus be get free from all the trauma that is in them. We, as a society can help each other and spread the awareness about the basic rights as to contribute to that greater good. I want to volunteer and help Zakat Foundation of India - Ladies Wing to expand and reach out to more women and girls. Let's bring a change together.

With Warm regards
