Washim Mia, Staff Reporter: One can find a number of children who born in the open streets in Bangladesh. Even those new born children don’t know in their entire lifetime who their parents are and where their individual address is. These lives are born and brought up in the saddest portion of the city; streets, parks, railway station, bus stops, open skies to be exact. In some cases, they haven’t the dare to dream for good food, new dresses and finally a better tomorrow. These unprivileged and support seeker children were on the spotlight as The RMG Times, an established online apparel and textile news source, has come forward like every year to bring smiles at least for some over hundred tender faces offering new clothes and food commodities for them as a part of ‘RMG Times Eid Ananda’ program. It counted season 5 this year.
A youthful group of triumphant hearts of University students who are making an ascension to the path of better future for these unprivileged children providing free education, food, guidance and care, built up ‘Swapno Pathshala’, a nucleus for these raw lives. They organized a program on 24 May 2019 at Shaheed Sohrawardi Udyan, Dhaka. Some 110 children have been distributed new clothes and food items on the occasion of this Eid.
USB Asia Ltd., a renowned Turkey based audit and certification company and Deltex GmbH Bangladesh, a well reputed Germany based buying house along RMG Times also came forward patronizing the program.
Mr. Abdul Alim, Editor- The RMG Times, Mr. Hasnat Kabir, Country Manager- USB Asia Ltd and Mr. Asifur Rahman, Senior Auditor (Sustainability) – Deltex GmbH Bangladesh, Mr. Ahsan Ahmed Shuvo, Founder- Swapno Pathshala, Reporters of RMG Times were present during this CSR program.
“The demand of these children is not such big that one has to be in pressure to fill them up. What they need is just a simple living while all basic needs will be covered. Most of them have no identity, so what we are here for them. We have been distributing new clothes and some food items every year and this is fifth time we are with them. Everyone of us, who is well to do in the society, should extend our helpful hand for them as part of our social accountability”, was saying Mr. Abdul Alim in his speech.
“Thanks is just a word but still gratitude to USB Asia and Deltex for coming forward responding the call of these support needed children, responding the call humanity in broader sense”, thanked Mr. Alim to the patrons.
The children were all shouting, jumping and smiling after getting new dresses in their hand as if finally they got the moon in their grasp.
