Presently her mother has stopped doing stitching work because of her ill health and she takes care of her younger sister. The only earning member of Afrin’s family is her elder sister.

After Afrin’s father’s death Afrin’s uncle (father’s elder brother) was supporting them by providing money as and when needed, but he too has passed away few years back. Thus now they themselves have to manage everything.
