The outbreak of the deadly pandemic Covid-19 has brought an extreme situation to the world. The countries worldwide are going through a crisis period in terms of economy and social circumstances. The frequent rising number of deaths and people being infected has been creating a panic for mass people. The world economy is in a derailing status for the lock-down condition of businesses and temporary closing of transactions worldwide. Millions of people around the world are losing employment, which is proceeding towards a humanitarian crisis especially for the people who earn on a daily basis for survival. Bangladesh as a developing nation has been facing these consequences severely now.
For prevention and public safety- the government encouraged to conduct 'home office' and specific people to go out of home just in case of emergency purposes. A significant number of the population live on daily earnings and are underprivileged in economic and social conditions. These people are struggling to survive with their families for not being able to earn for which it is often becoming tough for them to follow the lock-down condition that is prevailing for the sake of safety.

The project intends to serve helpless people with the cooperation of concerned individuals considering humanity to contribute for mankind and social well being to commemorate dreams its philanthropic founder ABINTA KABIR. Till date we have supported around 1000 families. The intention is to continue the project until the situation gets better.
