The founder of Hothur Foundation, Kulsum Shadab Wahab was honored with an award at the Society Iconic Indian Honours last night.
Kulsum Shadab Wahab and Hothur Foundation are known to work towards the upliftment of women in our society. The foundation majorly works with acid attack survivors and helps them to stride through their lives with the respect and honour they deserve.
At the Society Iconic Indian Honours, Kulsum Shadab Wahab was conferred with this distinction due to her passion and hard work towards this cause. Since she had other commitments, she asked a survivor from her foundation to receive this prestigious award on behalf of her.
On getting this honour, Kulsum Shadab Wahab says, “I am very overwhelmed on receiving this award. I wanted to thank the platform to have acknowledged the work that we do. Hothur foundation tries to make a small difference in the lives of women who have gone through the ordeal of being attacked and have come through it shining. We are in awe of their strength and are so happy that we can contribute to their journey.”
