This month I continued to heal from surgery.
Embraced Ramadan 2020 under Covid-19 conditions by participating in Observing Ramadan in Britain/Overseas Research project.
Supported World Fair Trade Day 2020.
For those that don't know I was admitted to hospital after a few weeks of excruciating pain in my left ovary and required urgent surgery.
My cyst was removed 17th March 2020.
My consultant informed me that the cyst had ruptured and had welded itself to my colon and left ovary. He removed the white ruptured cyst cleaned me up. but could not see any signs of Endometriosis or PCOS due to inflammation.
I was in two minds about attaching photographs of my ruptured cyst and decided against it.
Thank you to all my friends and family who sent get well messages.
I expressed interest to participate in the Observing Ramadan in Britain Photo Research project.
This project was conceived by a Phd researcher Laura Jones - Cardiff University. I've been asked to take a photograph of every day of Ramadan and provide a short explanation of each photograph
Ramadan Mubarak/Kareem to all my friends and family around the world.
Sadly, this was the second Ramadan in my life where I was not well enough to fast.
I pray Allah azza wa'ajal (God) will accept my prayers and zakat, Aameen!

To support the call to eliminate child labour, I attended a webinar, 'Stacey Fru dialogue on Child Labour in Africa,' On World Day Against Child Labour.
I also shared a childhood photo with the caption,
“As a kid, I wanted to become __. I’m sharing this photo to support the United Nations Year for the Elimination of Child Labour, because I believe kids should dream now and work later. I challenge @(tag Name 1), @(Name 2), @(Name 3) to do the same. #EndChildLabour2021″
This month I continued to heal from all my surgeries, raised awareness for Fairtrade Ethical Ramadan 2021 and participated in two webinars,
the first webinar was a round table discussion about Social Enterprise in the UAE. the second was about 'Periods in a Pandemic.'
