The ZB Popup shop
Established in 2012 by parents Danielle and Akber Naqvi, The ZB Foundation is a Dubai-based non-profit organization that works to raise both awareness and funds for New Born Screening in Pakistan.
After the tragic death of their adopted daughter, Zahra Beau, from a rare metabolic disease at just four months old, Danielle and Akber have made it their mission to work to prevent such tragedy and as such, all funds raised by the ZB Foundation go towards purchasing the necessary equipment required to carry out such tests, as well as paying for the screening of as many babies as possible. Educating the masses and local medical practitioners as to the importance of these tests is key too.
In the foundation’s latest effort to raise funds, They teamed up with four leading fashion designers to create a series of unique T-shirts. Dubbed the #Onthewingsofanangel tee, each bears the emblem of an angel (sketched by graphic designer Dima El Atab) and is available in forever-chic black, white or grey. Each of the designers – All Things Mochi, Reema Ameer, Bambah and Ayesha Depala – have sewn their stylish threads into the tee, making it their own.
The Dhs225 proceeds from the sale of each tee is enough to cover one new born screening test. “Our aim is to get as many women and children as possible to purchase and wear their tees and shout loud about it. It’s a fun way to raise awareness and we hope to be able to spread our mission around the region, if not globe!” says Danielle.
