She was then brought to a hospital in Birmingham, where she was being treated, and later restarted her campaign for girl child education.
After a couple of months of surgeries and therapy, she was reunited with her family in their new home in the United Kingdom in 2014. With the help and suggestion of her father, Malala established the Malala Fund which is a non-profit Organisation dedicated to giving every girl the opportunity to achieve the future she desires and attain the passion which she has.
