The tragedy of the people of Afghanisan has been thrown into shocking focus this year. Helping to relieve some of the pain of refugees is the aim of the Khorasan Charity Organization, which although a UK charity provides assistance to Afghan refugees living in Peshawar, Pakistan and to widows’ families in Afghanistan itself. As a member of the charity’s executive committee, Seema takes part in many activities, but he crowning achievements has been playing a key role in setting up Khorasan House, the orphanage in Peshawar that currently houses 12 children who all look upon Seema as their ‘mother’. Seema said: “I have always felt for people in need around the world, and the opportunity to take part in the set-up of Khorasan was something that I wouldn’t miss. I have learned a great deal during the last two years of volunteering with Khorasan, including management, administrative and time management skills, as well as the ability to work in various hardship locations. In return I’ve built up throught my job with PwC to the charity.”
