Despite being a mother of four children, Nighat got herself involved in social work early on when she joined the Networking Key Services Ltd (NKS), a health and welfare organisation working for South Asian women and their families living in Edinburgh. He son got diagnosed with Leukemia and unfortunately, succumbed to the disease in 2018. Her son’s death made her even more resolved to contribute to the society. Through a relation, she heard news that the Food Bank at the World Care Foundation was looking for volunteers, and Nighat immediately got herself enlisted as a volunteer in 2018. Since then she has been doing distribution, collections, packing, emergency shopping, for people in need of such assistance. Unsurprisingly, Covid19 Pandemic put tremendous pressure on organisations involved in charity and social work.
