“Loads of messages asking why they sent their 8 year old daughter to work.. they didn’t. The father has told us he has 6 kids… the father sent the daughter (Zohra Shah) to Islamabad with her Khala (aunty) to study there. The khala then put Zohra Shah to work… where she was beaten to death.”

“I am sending a member of the @amirkhanfoundation tomorrow to visit Zohra Shah’s father’s home, give our donations. We will take responsibility [for] the family… schooling the children & providing their needs,” Faryal added.

The duo has collected a sum of £13,769 of donations for Zohra’s family.
