Shohomormita Foundation took an initiative to make this Eid a happy one for the underserved communities with their Hashir Dokhan in five points of Savar including the national Martyrs’ Memorial. The open shop sold clothes for children for one taka, or even in exchange of anything they have. The initiative started from the tenth of Ramadan. The shop had time slots where they are sold Eid groceries, including sugar, shemai, rice and spices for one taka. Parvez Hasan is founder of Shohomormita Foundation, which currently has 121 volunteers.
“We aim to spend time with street kids, make them laugh, talk to them and buy food for them,” he says. Parvez, an aspiring filmmaker, has made documentaries on social issues and awareness. The foundation has arranged two successful medical campaigns with the help of several doctors. After the diagnosis and tests, volunteers bought medicines for the patients and gave them for free.
‘I am looking forward to a healthy and happier Bangladesh and I always try to request people to help the underprivileged in any manner they can,” Parvez adds. The foundation also looks to open a school in Savar in the near future.
