Bashundhara Group, the largest industrial conglomerate of Bangladesh, continued to stand by the cold-hit poor people across the country.

It distributed blankets among the cold victims in Narail, Jhenaidah and Pabna districts on Tuesday.

Around 1,000 distressed people received the blankets at a programme held on the premises of Gazipur-Matiadanga Govt Primary School in Kalia upazila of Narail.

Hailing from Matiadanga village of Kalia, Amiron Begum, 70, expressed her deep gratitude to Bashundhara Group after receiving a blanket. “I urged many people to give me a blanket but they turned a deaf ear. So, my happiness after getting the blanket beggars description,” she said with tearful eyes.
