• Story of Program Beneficiaries:
” আমরা দিনমজুর মানুষ,এমনি খাইতে পারিনা। এহন তো আরও পামু না।… কি করুম জানি না। আল্লায় এমন কষ্ট যেন কাউরে না দেয়….”
There were more uncertainties we faced in those flood-affected areas. Flood victims were confused because they are sovereigns. We did our best, but it’s not enough. We need more help and support to help them get back to a healthy normal life….
