In urban areas, winter has yet to fully set in. But in far-off places, the rural areas are covering everything in fog. While busy city streets are still waiting for winter’s chill, the outskirts have embraced the season, turning the scenery into a peaceful picture of beauty.
But these things are not any fact of enjoyment towards the marginalized community. For the poor and helpless people, winter means the unbearable grade of shivering and increasing vulnerability to various illnesses.
Therefore, the MASTUL Foundation has taken a proactive step to distribute winter clothes to the needy. Especially, this year MASTUL plans to extend this activity even more to reach a massive number of beneficiaries.

The Founder and Executive Director of MASTUL Foundation stated- “This year we will provide blankets and winter clothes to almost 1 lakh people in need. Our local representative already started to distribute these in areas like Kurigram, Dinajpur, Panchagarh, and Rangpur. “
It is worth mentioning, that MASTUL Foundation operates its school and is also affiliated with 22 schools in 12 districts of Bangladesh to support almost 1100 students from poor and helpless communities. They are getting different support from the MASTUL Foundations including books, pens, pencils, and other educational stationeries.
Apart from these activities, the MASTUL Foundation operates a shelter home for orphan children. Moreover, MASTUL runs a sewing training center that plays a big role in making helpless women skilled and empowered. Besides this, the “Zakat Empowerment Program” is another massive initiative through which almost 800 people became empowered. Since the COVID-19 crisis, MASTUL also provided funeral and burial services. Up to 3000 dead bodies are buried by maintaining all the religious rituals.

There is also a special food bank named MASTUL Mehmankhana where the day laborers and people from underprivileged communities can enjoy a modest meal free of cost.
