Mukto Asor stands beside Kurigram flood victims


Mukto Asor, an organisation that upholds the spirit of 1971 liberation war, has extended a helping hand towards 200 flood-affected families of Kurigram ahead of Eid-ul-Azha.

The organisation distributed relief material to flood-hit areas of Beer Rahimer Char and Khamadam Char in Ulipur upazila's Bajra union on Saturday.

Receiving the rice, pulses, oil, soap, salt, and other reilief material, the locals said Mukto Asor had been the first organisation to stand beside them.

"We had everything. But the floods washed it all away. Allah will bless those who gave us food," a 60-year-old Kachhiman Begum said.

Mukto Asor publicity secretary, Abdur Razzak Sarker, said, "We tried to stand beside the flood-affected people of Kurigram ahead of Eid-ul-Azha so that they don't miss Eid celebrations."

Supported by local organisation Jagi, the relief distribution event was attended by publisher Rupam Razzaq, Jagi's founder Abu Hena Mustafa, teacher Mahabubar Rahman and others.

Earlier, Mukto Asor distributed relief goods to the flood victims of Moheshkangla Char of Sirajganj and organised a free medical camp in Natuapara Char of Kazipur Char.
