Literally Eid fitre comes after a month long fasting from dawn to dusk globally by the Muslim devotees. The significance of celebration is huge in practice. According to the directives of Islam one has to pay the Sadaka and Zakat to the distressed or underprivileged elsewhere or around us before going to perform the EID congregations. It is given to either comparatively poor people from the relatives or the neighbours at large. However, this time the Eid ul Fitre is completely different than any other years, decades or centuries especially for the pandemic outbreak of novel Corona Virus COVID-19 that struck worldwide leaving the people in a total jeopardy. It is a matter of immense joy that BBF global is rendering kind supports affected people all over the globe.
From the very outset of COVID-19 , Better Bangladesh Foundation has been working on this critical issue to address it properly or to materialize it to mass people about the severity. The economy fell down all of sudden as the government imposed an abrupt lockdown countrywide. However, the sufferings of people in general beefed up drastically due to the solitary state or not having any livelihood to support the family. Thousand of people lost their jobs, number of entrepreneurs lost the capital and a countless number of industries are waiting to shut down because of uncertainty prevails everywhere.
On 24th May, 2020 Professor Masud A Khan, the Chairman of Better Bangladesh Foundation (BBF) with his other colleagues Muhammad Anwar Hossain, Head of Communications, (BBF), SM Robiul Alam paid a courtesy visit to greet and meet the untold and unknown figures of the society who are physically handicapped and living in Chessire Homes Uttara. Seeing the caravans of Better Bangladesh Foundation the Chessire dwellers became ecstatic and their joys knew no bound. They started calling their other mates to join in our little gathering spontaneously. It seems to me that people over there were keep waiting to receive us with their natural warmness. We really became astounded to see the sparkling faces surrounded us in a minute. The real taste of Eid celebration was tasted over there with the apparently unfortunate but mentally they are quite sound through their activities.
However, Better Bangladesh Foundation arranged a little Eid commodities with some cash money to help accelerate the happiness of the physically disabled but mentally strong.
