Bangladesh wicket-keeper batsman Mushfiqur Rahim has stood beside the shopkeepers of Jahangirnagar University who were hit hard by the COVID-19.
With the university being closed for the last three months due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus in the country, those businessmen who have small shops, tea stalls on the university campus fell into a troublesome situation.
Mushfiqur, who is the student of this university, sent his assistance to these businessmen through a voluntary team of the campus.
Considered as one of the best batsmen of the country, Mushfiqur started his humanitarian act ever since the coronavirus broke out in Bangladesh. He firstly donated the half of the monthly salary along with other cricketers.
He thereafter on his own started sending relief goods and the necessary medical items to the physicians and health workers in his district Bogura. Apart from that he gave financial assistance to many vulnerable people and cricket related people.
He also put his bat, which he used to score the country’s maiden double century against Sri Lanka, up for auction to raise money.
