June 2019

 

This June I fasted the final days of Ramadan and celebrated Eid ul Fitr.

Was very poorly and had to rest my shoulders and back.

 Ordered the Traidcraft 40th anniversary 2019 resource pack

and bamboo cup.

 

 

Ramadan and Eid ul Fitr 2019

This Ramadan was challenging.

Since my surgeries, I miss my parents.

Every fast, iftar and suhoor reminded me of my parents, their love, blessings and comforting words that are now absent from my life.

I pray for everyone who is grieving for their mother, father or loved one.

Sending you love, peace and blessings as you heal.

Wishing everyone a beautiful Eid with your loved ones!

 

Eid Mubarak from Sabeena Ahmed - Creator and Founder of The Little Fair Trade Shop

 

Self-Care and Well being

I spent most of the month in bed trying to alleviate my shoulder and back pain.

Sometimes we just have to rest and heal.

I hope I can achieve a few more goals and actions next month.

THRIVE LDN - Great Mental Health Day Webinars January 2024 (English and Urdu)

My sister sent me links to webinars about Great Mental Health Day which took place 26th January 2024.

I am grateful to all the guest speakers and trainers who took time out of their busy schedules to talk about Suicide Prevention, Bereavement and Write to Speak Your Poetry.

Translation in Urdu

میری بہن نے مجھے عظیم دماغی صحت کے دن کے بارے میں ویبینرز کے لنکس بھیجے جو 26 جنوری 2024 کو ہوا تھا۔

میں ان تمام مہمان مقررین اور ٹرینرز کا مشکور ہوں جنہوں نے اپنے مصروف شیڈول میں سے وقت نکال کر خودکشی کی روک تھام، سوگ اور اپنی شاعری لکھنے کے بارے میں بات کی۔

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all my fair trade friends and family around the world.

My right shoulder is still very painful and inflamed again and I have struggled to type this blog.

Despite my pain I managed to attend a webinar and record videos about PIE Community members expressing an interest to join.

I joined a couple of sessions about Mental Health and Suicide Training.

These sessions were organised by THRIVE LDN.

Translation in Urdu

نیا سال مبارک ہو!

دنیا بھر میں میرے تمام منصفانہ تجارتی دوستوں اور اہل خانہ کو نیا سال مبارک ہو۔

میرا دایاں کندھا اب بھی بہت تکلیف دہ ہے اور دوبارہ سوجن ہے اور میں نے اس بلاگ کو ٹائپ کرنے کے لیے جدوجہد کی ہے۔

میں دماغی صحت اور خودکشی کی تربیت کے بارے میں کچھ سیشنز میں شامل ہوے۔

ان سیشنز کا اہتمام THRIVE LDN نے کیا تھا۔
