NARSINGDI: A number of ultra poor people living in the vast sandy char areas of the Meghna Arialkhan and Haridoa Rivers in the district have changed their fate over years by rearing livestock and poultry birds, reports BSS.

As the people are becoming self –reliant economically, a sense of awareness on sanitation, safe drinking water, health care facilities for children and mother, prevention of dowry, child marriage, repression on female and trafficking of children and women is also being made among all in those areas. A recent survey revealed that helpless men and women in most of the char villages under Narsingdi Sadar, Raipura and Belabo upazilas of the district in recent years have achieved huge success by livestock and poultry farming and living a decent life.

The inhabitants of these char areas are mostly landless people having lost everything in river. But now they are engaged in rearing livestock on commercial basis in the char lands.
