Seven-year-old physically challenged girl Tahira received a wheelchair from the Bashundhara Group, a leading business conglomerate of the country.

Tahira, a class-one student, is unable to walk since her birth. For literacy, her parents admitted her to a school meant for disabled children.

Tahira goes to school, 10 miles away from her home in Indurkani upazila of Pirojpur, taking help of her parents. It is difficult for parents to take her to school. In this situation, they were desperately looking for a wheelchair to facilitate her movement.

In the meantime, Bashundhara Group extended helping hand by giving a wheelchair to Tahira to fulfill her dream.

Shuvosangho, a social organisation of Bashundhara Group’s reputed Bengali daily Kaler Kantho, handed over a wheelchair to Tahira.

Md Mosharrof Hossain, a freedom fighter, Zannati Akter, a teacher of Indurkani disabled school and JI Lavlu, upazila correspondent of Kaler Kantho, were present at the programme.

In addition, the Bashundhara Group has taken responsibility of the study of the physically challenged girl.

Seuly Begum, mother of Tahira, said, “We are facing problem with our daughter. Tahira is youngest of our three children. My dream about her was higher than that of other children. Due to physical incapacity, she cannot go to school alone. Her father works in the cultivation land of other persons.  He is always busy with his work. So, I have to look after my children. We will benefit from the wheelchair. It will reduce our sufferings. We are grateful to the Bashundhara Group.”

Shuvosangho coordinator of Barishal division Imon Chowdhury said “The Bashundhara Group is working for the welfare of the people of the country. Thousands of members of Shuvosangho are working to implement the humanitarian and social welfare activities of the corporate body.”

The Bashundhara Group through Shuvosangho gives scholarships to poor meritorious students, houses to destitute homeless people and logistic supports to unemployed destitute across the country for economic emancipation.

As part of the humanitarian scheme,  the largest business conglomerate has adopted various initiatives in Pirojpur district being implemented by Shuvosangho.
