In a bid to put smiles on the faces of struggling young women in the FCT-Abuja, while also boosting their confidence, the Executive Director and Founder of the Shamies Unusual Hearts Foundation, Amb. Sara Abdul gave out half of her wardrobe at a brief event which was held at her residence in Abuja on Saturday, 13th November 2021.
According to Amb. Abdul, the items which range from clothes, shoes and bags were meant to show love and support to the struggling young women while also helping them to cushion the effect of the current economic realities.
“When people ask me why I do what I do, I tell them that I do so based on my past experiences. It has not always been this rosy for me. I have once upon a time being in a place of lack, and I know how it feels not to have some basic needs. Therefore, I will continue to put smiles on the faces of people whenever I can do so.
The beneficiaries who could not hide their excitement were full of gratitude to Amb. Sara for her kind gesture. They showered her with encomiums and prayers.
A passionate humanitarian, philanthropist and a published author, her personal experiences have enabled her to empathise with the plight of inmates and ex-convicts. Through her NGO, and in partnership with other notable NGOs in Nigeria, Amb. Sara has provided succour to hundreds of disadvantaged within and outside the FCT through the provision of food items, relief materials and toiletries.
Described by many as an angel with a heart of gold, Amb. Sara’s good deeds have not gone unnoticed, as several reputable institutions and organisations within and outside Nigeria have bestowed honours and awards on her.
