Meet the TEAM! Introducing Zakia Meet the TEAM! Introducing Zakia Meet the TEAM! Introducing Zakia

Meet the Nowzad team is proud to introduce Zakia.
Working behind the scenes to prepare the dog food; wash the blankets used in the kennels and the clinic, ensure staff scrubs are clean and pressed, whilst also ensuring the main house is kept hoovered and dust free. ( A serious chore in Afghanistan!) and truth be known; always finding time to play with resident dogs BJ and TinTin; Zakia is truly dedicated to the cause of animal welfare in Afghanistan. Sadly now widowed, (Zakia cared for her husband who sadly suffered from Alzheimer’s for 9 years before he passed) her grandchildren from her 7 children keep her occupied when she gets home from work! Never without a smile, Zakia seems to learn a new word of English daily to surprise Pen as she greets him when she arrives at the clinic. Zakia is a true dog person as she thinks they are very smart. Teaching TinTin to shake paws is always a favourite story of hers! Her day off on Friday is spent watching TV... and we won’t deny her that luxury!! Although she is also a huge fan of chocolate!! This is Zakia.
A loyal and extremely hardworking member of team Nowzad!
