The Story of Nasima

In a remote village of Abbaspur located in Azad Jammu Kashmir, a beautiful baby girl with golden hair, fair complexion, and captivating looks came into the world in 1951. Named Nasima, which means a gentle breeze, she was adopted by her uncle and experienced a cherished childhood. Nasima completed her education up to grade 10, growing up as a kind and innocent girl adored by everyone around her.

In 1970, Nasima married Mr. Saleem, a respectable middle-class man, and moved to the bustling city of Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Adjusting to the change in culture and transitioning into a joint family, Nasima gradually became shy, introverted, and nervous in social settings.

Despite her reserved nature, Nasima considered herself fortunate to have a supportive husband and mother-in-law. However, she struggled to interact with people and connect with more extroverted family members. Over time, Nasima's focus revolved around her family, embracing her role as a devoted wife, mother, and compassionate human being.

With three sons and two daughters, Nasima's children cherished her for her love and kindness. Nasima firmly believed in showing kindness to others, particularly to her workers, house helps, maids, and those in need around her. She consistently extended a helping hand, dedicating her resources to those who sought assistance. Her selfless acts of kindness earned her the endearing title of "NASIMA," a gentle breeze of selflessness.

Sadly, Nasima passed away on January 26, 2019, in Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan. However, her legacy lives on through the Nasima Foundation, dedicated to the cause of helping people in need. The foundation focuses on empowering disadvantaged women, providing them with shelter, income-generating opportunities, and assisting them in finding their life partners by arranging their matrimonial expenses. Nasima Foundation strives to support women of all backgrounds, regardless of their color, religion, or boundaries, enabling them to move forward in life with confidence and resilience.
