Bashundhara Group, the country’s largest industrial conglomerate, started distributing blankets to the impoverished families in the villages of Sunamganj’s haor areas on Saturday. The ongoing cold spell has prompted Bashundhara Shuvosangho, a humanitarian organisation of the Bashundhara Group, to distribute blankets to over 500 families along the haor areas in Madhyanagar upazila of the district. The distribution event took place at the Madhyanagar Government Primary School ground in Sunamganj at 11:30pm on Saturday. Mantaz Uddin, 75, from Karoajan village, expressed his gratitude, saying, “This winter has been challenging, and we, the poor, cannot afford blankets. Today, we have benefitted greatly by getting blankets. May Allah bless the owners of the Bashundhara Group for their generosity.” Other villagers, including Abdur Razzak, Nayeb Ali, Mamta Barman, Labanya Sarkar, and Pramoda Barman, echoed the same, sharing their happiness at receiving blankets for the first time. The distribution event witnessed the presence of Zakaria Zaman, Shuvosangho director and senior assistant editor of the Daily Kaler Kantho, Sanjib Ranjan Talukdar, chairman of Madhyanagar Sadar union parishad, Golam Sarwar Liton, advisor of Tahirpur upazila Shuvosangho, journalist Jahangir Alam Bhuiyan, Al Amin Salman, Madhyanagar correspondent of the Daily Kaler Kantho, and upazila Awami League General Secretary Paritosh Sarkar. Zakaria Zaman said 2,500 blankets would be distributed in Tahirpur upazila. The distribution programme opened on Saturday. Bashundhara Shuvosangho, with the funding of the Bashundhara Group, will hand over the winter clothes to the helpless family members of haor areas in phases.
