Why Does This Mum Find It So Hard To Make Friends? | Channel Mum. Did you know that 51% of Muslim mums feel lonely? It's hardly surprising when 35% of mums admit they wouldn't approach another mum wearing a hijab.
Muslim mum, Nilly Dahlia recently decided to take our YANA (You Are Not Alone) challenge, which is aimed at helping mums to feel less lonely. The task was simple, all she had to do was smile at other mums when she went out, but sadly, not a single mother smiled back. Was it the hijab that put them off?
So, she's set you the Hijab Challenge. Take a couple of minutes to watch her video and see what it's about. Learn, share and support Nilly today... why not tag a friend or take your own photo but most of all please say 'Hi' to a Hijabi mum so she knows she's not alone.
As Nilly says, "see past the scarf and see the person" - we're all mums going through the same thing so the more we're together, the better it will be.
