The use of domestic help in Pakistan is pretty common. Given how the country is drenched in poverty, families here use the help of domestic workers and it is a normality practiced in different parts of the world as well. The important thing in such a condition is how people treat their help.

We have often seen images floating on social media how the people treat their domestic help – some refuse to offer them food when they take them to cafes and restaurants, while others make them sit in the truck of a car. However, there are a few who genuinely care about the sentiments of their help and treat them like humans rather than paid labor. Such can be seen from this sweet video message by the domestic help to the girl she once looked after.

Hira Hyder Shares How her Help Roma Was More Than Just a Worker; She Was a Friend and a Confidant

Here’s what Hira wrote:

My younger sister who’s visiting our hometown Dubai just sent this heartwarming video-message she made for me from someone who I can never forget!
.
.
Meet Roma; she was a helper of mine who was not only there for me to keep my home in order while I was living alone during my last two years at university, but she was someone who I confided in and had been a deep source of comfort to me with her wise words!
.
.
I remember how Roma had been by my side throughout as I with a heavy heart, packed away my apartment in preparation to return to Canada. Roma had a knack for stopping mid-way in conversation or while working and giving me blessings in the form of heartfelt prayers; I couldn’t at any cost lose that form of love. On the last day when I bid her good-bye, I gave her my ‘chador’ which I would use to pray salah and told her that whenever she would perform her salah, this ‘chador’ would remind her to pray for me.
.
.
Often we forget that genuine care and love are rooted within kind hearts; such rare and priceless qualities are overlooked in a superficial world like ours when it comes to the social-class divide, especially in countries within the Middle East and South Asia.
.
.
‪It is people like Roma who are the true personification of unconditional love and whose kindness does not expect anything in return for its selfless act.‬
‪She is the true face of humanity.‬
‪She is far richer than so many others; the one who possesses a kind heart.‬
