The warm-hearted helper is said to have started working With the family that lives in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) when Khalid’s last born was only 2-years-old and the two had built a special bond. As the family exchanged hugs and showered Sarah with praises, they could not hold back their tears as they let one of their favourite helper who had become part of the family over the years.
“We love you and will miss you so much Sarah, you Will always have a place in our hearts and in our home,” added Khalid.
