One of our friends’ younger brother is suffering from Compressive Myelopathy for over 2 years now. Doctors have suggested taking him to Singapore for better treatment. It will be near impossible for his family to bear the cost of Tk 3.5 million (50,000 USD) which is required for the treatment. So we decided to help them as much as we reasonably can. From the beginning of this month we have literally worked all day to help this cause. Our goal is to raise Tk 40,000 by mid December; we have raised 45% of that so far. We know that our efforts are not nearly close to their requirement. But every contribution counts, right? These small contributions will develop courage and shed some light of hope to that family; and hope is what we live for. I pray for the boy to get better soon.
The second voluntary work I was talking about is the campus cleanup project. This was the month of admission tests in our beautiful university campus. Thousands came to sit on the exams and fought for a seat in our university. The number of candidates was a record 40,000+. Great to see the popularity of Jahangirnagar University rising. But the sad thing is, the candidates come and go, and leave a load of trash and litter lying all around. We can not blame them for that, as there are just a few trash cans in our campus, maybe 3 or 4. So to notify the authority – to do something about it - we have cleaned up the trash of some “hot-places” and gladly our work was not unnoticed by them or the students & teachers. Our effort was featured in two national newspapers which was a huge bonus for us. I hope authority will act soon to clean the trash up and set up some “much awaited trash cans” to maintain the beauty of this great campus.Thanks to Imon for taking the initiative
