Tanzila Khan, Zargoona Wadood and Afshan Afridi are savage promoters for the privileges of Pakistanis on Wheelchair, a battle these Pakistani women are fighting themselves also. Zargoona Wadood and Afshan Afridi needed wheelchair ince they were babies because of polio. Khan has been not able to walk as a result of a prior condition since birth. Still each one of them have accomplished uncommon things that will inspire everyone.
Tanzila Khan is a activist and entrepreneur from Punjab who is set to help improve ladies’ health. She runs Girlythings, a service that conveys feminine hygiene items to ladies across Pakistan. She is the writer, maker and actor behind Pakistan’s first short comedy on disability called Fruit Chaat. She is additionally a public speaker and do numerous different endeavors on disabilty and women empowerment.
Then comes Afshan Afridi who lives in Peshawar. She is initially from the frontier area of Kohat. She was raised in Peshawar. She studied through a specialized curriculum administrations in the city. She did her Bachelors in Microbiology and have been working in the development sector since 2013. She is functioning as a gender equality and social inclusion officer for a worldwide organization. She also works with different provincial government associations to help include the women with disabilities in their policy making.
Zargoona Wadood is from Quetta, Balochistan. She has done Bachelors in Law and Masters in English Literature. As of now she is functioning as an inability rights advocate. Her work principally centers around ladies with handicaps.
These three ladies consider their kinship a “unique cocktail” that is a mixture from three territories — Punjab, Balochistan and KPK.
They were united through their work on inability developments across Pakistan. Their choice to travel together on a tour abroad was the best decision they ever made.
When the opportunity arrived, the ladies decided to go to Egypt for their first performance trip. What made the edge of the Sahara Desert a more prominent fascination to these women than the sandy sea shores of some tropical nation and the appropriate response lay in Egypt’s rich history. “We were constantly captivated by Egypt, the set of experiences, the way of life,” Khan advised me. “We’re additionally enormous admirers of Prophet Musa in Islam and we truly needed to visit the nation where he was conceived.”
The simple accessibility of halal food helped them hugely on their first trip together. Especially when Egypt is known for large numbers of their food dishes that have the right to be tasted.
For these ladies, no nation on Earth was truly going to guarantee them 100% support. But they chose not to restrict their choices and visited a country they truly wanted to go.
Their photos in egypt clearly show they were having a lifetime experience of true freedom that should not be taken lightly. This experience is showing something beyond travel.
Obviously no occasion is all fun and games, particularly for handicapped women who decide to travel alone. As it was for these three ladies as well. But Nothing is impossible, which is exactly the motto of these strong ladies.
“It’s essential to pre-research about the spots you are travelling to,” suggests Khan for any other individual (handicapped or not) who wants to travel.
When Khan was asked about “how the public authority and other government organizations can make the experience of worldwide voyaging simpler for handicapped individuals?” She suggested, “The public authority should offer administrations that assists handicapped individuals with making the arranging system simpler,” Afridi said. “Administrations that can assist with speeding up process of our visas. Government can also make a contact with different countries to protect uncommon administrations and simplicity for handicapped Pakistanis.”
Wadood said autonomous travel services ought to likewise bear some liability on this front. “They should offer customized bundles with limits. Such bundles ought to incorporate visiting places that gives ease for . We’ve come to discover that occasionally you have no choice except for to drop or change your arrangements without a second to spare in light of the fact that a spot you chose to visit isn’t entirely available. In the event that travel planners can see to the entirety of this ahead of time, it would offer extraordinary solace to Pakistani Women on Wheelchair, particularly one who means on going without an orderly.”
The Covid-19 pandemic didn’t make things any simpler for Pakistani Women on Wheelchair. “Our appointments continued getting dropped after we got our visas. We needed to get our Covid tests and inoculations done on schedule. A great deal of issues came our direction on account of the pandemic. We finished every last bit of it ourselves without requesting extra help from others however,” said Afridi.
In spite of all the hardships, the Egypt tour is a stupendous achievement by these ladies. And they have said they will make touring a regular part in their lives. There next stop may be Spain, according to a statement by Afridi. Obviously, these women will achieve their next and many more objectives as well while they are breathing.
