In Barguna, an organization called Mangal Aloy Foundation has put a smile on the faces of half a hundred Vedas with food aid. The food aid was distributed at noon on Friday (May 28) at Bedi Palli in Gaurichanna Union of Barguna Sadar Upazila. In addition to the corona, food aid was provided by the volunteer organization in the Vedic village, which was flooded by the effects of cyclone Yas and the full moon tide.
The assistance provided to 20 families includes five kg of rice, one kg of pulses, two kg of potatoes, one kg of onion, one liter of oil and one kg of salt. The residents of this village also got help.
“We can’t go home for professional work because of Corona,” said Swadhin Mandal, a team leader from Veda Palli. That is why we have no income. Besides, we are not permanent residents of this place. So I am not getting government cooperation. For this reason, we spend our days without eating. At such a time, this help has brought smiles on the faces of all of us.
Nargis Sultana, chairman of the Mangal Alo Foundation, said, “We have been trying for the last two years to stand by the poorest as well as the most neglected people in the society.” In continuation of this, we have provided food assistance to the neglected Vedic community of Barguna. We will continue this effort in the future.
