Dear Readers,

 

World Eating Disorders Awareness Week (#ShareYourStory) is fast approaching! Let’s join hands with all the ED organisations across the world to tackle ED issues, bust myths, share the unique stories, and point people to support and resources. Since 2012, many sufferers have shared their unique stories with us. In respect of World Eating Disorders Awareness Week, we’ll be highlighting these stories, publishing new stories and once again contacting mosques and community organizations across the Muslim world to raise awareness of Eating Disorders in Muslim Communities. We encourage you to become part of this great deed. Please contact us and get directly in touch with the organisation  as well. This year we have collaborated with Dr Madeeha at Hamdard University in Islamabad to take the message of Eating Disorders across to people of Pakistan and Muslim World. We will be sharing stories during this week. Share your story with us get in touch waragainsteatingdisorder@gmail.com
