Islamic Relief Stats at a Glance
Rabia lives in a secluded part of South Sunamgonj, Sylhet. She lost her husband eight years ago to hepatitis, leaving Rabia and her daughters all alone. Forced to beg door to door, sometimes the family went for days on end without food. To be single woman in the rural areas of Bangladesh can be dangerous – and for Rabia, it certainly proved to be. One terrifying night, she was woken in her bed to sounds of something breaking. When the drunk men who had broken into her home came into Rabia’s room, she tried to defend her daughters but they beat her. Her children were left at their mercy.
