Qamro Jan was awarded by the Pakistan government for her performance and she was given the excellence award in 1999-2000 Although it is a big achievement for her and she has enjoyed receiving the award but in fact it is no more than a piece of metal. This is not going to bring an end to her miseries. She is becoming poorer and poorer day by day. She deserves strong financial support not only from the provincial but from the central government.
