Alina Azhar, a 22-year-old Pakistani girl who won the Diana Award: “People say it’s a shame to talk about women’s reproductive health.”

They do not have the resources to spend money on diagnosis and treatment. She lives in a slum in Johar Town, Lahore and works in people’s homes there. Kaniz thinks she has a licorice problem and the disease has robbed her of her children.
“I was told by a nurse that it was due to licorice. I get tired of working all day and can’t sleep at night. There is pain all over her body. ”Tears were flowing from her eyes when she was saying these things to Alina Azhar.
