As a mother of seven children herself, Sunia can relate to the women she visits during her role as a Community Health Worker for the Muslim Hands Motherkind clinic in Afghanistan.
Sunia has been a health worker for three years now and is passionate about helping new and expectant mothers in her community, but it took her thirty years to realise her dream of being a care provider.
Her education was left incomplete when her mother was hospitalised after a bad accident. She learnt all she could from the nurses in the hospital, but it wasn’t until she was living in a refugee camp in Pakistan, over 10 years later that she finally got the opportunity to begin training as a health worker.
When Sunia returned home to Afghanistan in 2005, she was determined to continue her learning and she joined the Muslim Hands Community Health Worker training programme in 2013.
