“Each one of us can make a difference, but together we can make a change.”
A group of friends shared the same dream — to eradicate poverty and to help the underprivileged people of our country. With very little fund and paramount desire, Blessing for Human Foundation started their journey.
Their founder, Sirajul Islam Azad, and founding members: Naimul Fayek, Mahdee Nirmoy, Moazz Khan, and Tasnim Mahmud — set out with a goal in mind. With every single event, their ambition and perseverance pushed them to do bigger things. Eventually, it enabled them to expand their call for donations.
In no time, Blessing for Human Foundation got huge responses from both home and abroad that helped them fulfill their goals. An organisation which started off with a small distribution in Dhaka, is now operating in five divisions of Bangladesh.
With an ongoing pandemic and impoverishment, the economy was crippling. Blessing for Human Foundation came forward to help the underprivileged people of our society, aspiring to make a change in this humanitarian catastrophe. They helped over 10,000 people with a goal to eradicate hunger for the people who struggle to make both ends meet, people who live from hand to mouth, and cannot afford being out of work.
Their projects, like “Covid-19 Relief Distribution” and “Coast to Coast”, vitalised them to distribute 1500 packets of groceries throughout the different districts of Bangladesh including Dinajpur, Nilphamari, Satkhira, Noakhali , Kishoreganj, Koyra, Keraniganj, and Dhamrai. Narrating the quintessence of the month of Ramadan, this organisation provided over 300 parcels of Iftaar as a part of their “Feed the Hungry” project.
Amidst all the chaos, our country was hit by the strongest cyclone ever recorded in this region. BFHF team introduced their “Aid for Amphan” project and allotted over 300 packages of basic necessities in Moharajpur union of Koyra and Shyamnagar upazila, which were the most adversely affected.
This year on Eid-ul-Adha, Blessing for Human Foundation offered Qurbani on behalf of the organisation and distributed the meat among the needy people to share the joy of Eid. Currently, they have two ongoing projects; which are Covid-19 and Cyclone relief funds.
They continue their journey believing that it is their responsibility to ensure stability and consistency in our society by helping the people in need with whatever we can. While they keep on working persistently with a goal to eradicate hunger in this country, they encourage everyone to come forward. They believe that each one of us can make a difference, but together we can make a change.
The August issue of TDA, Youth in Philanthropy, intends to honour those youth-led organisations which are working selflessly to bring about a change in the society.
