Winter is one of the most challenging seasons for the less fortunate and underprivileged population of Bangladesh. Homeless individuals sleeping on roadside pavements are a common sight in the streets of Bangladesh and a harsh climate only makes their struggle tougher. AKF takes inspiration from Abinta’s words that describe her will to help the poverty stricken individuals.
“I think that I have a responsibility towards those who are less fortunate and don’t have the same luxuries as I am grateful to have. Those who are fortunate enough in life should help those in need in order to make their lives better.”
In December 2016, AKF has distributed 500 blankets to underprivileged families in Natore in order to help them combat the chilling conditions of winter. Through this initiative, AKF attempts to meet Abinta’s determination of helping the less fortunate members of her community.
