Every winter, many impoverished families in Bangladesh suffer tremendously in the cold; few of them even die due to a lack of warm clothing. Mournfully the situation got desperate this year. While the privileged people of our society welcomed winter with latest warm fashion trends, barbeque parties and pitha utshab, it brought unbearable sufferings for the lower income groups of the country.
For this reason, North South University Social Services Club organized their annual winter project ‘Winter Clothing Drive’ on 21st January at Thakurgaon district. A team of around 20 highly enthusiastic members of NSUSSC went there to distribute around 900 blankets with the ebullience to stand by these underprivileged people. The event took place at Aziznagar, Late Azizul Haque (Khoka) Memorial Association located in Kumarpur, Bhulli of Thakurgaon district. Police Super Md. Moniruzzaman and member of district council Md. Rowshanul Haque (Tushar) were also present during the event.
