Qatar Charity distributes school supplies to Bangladesh’s underprivileged students
Qatar Charity (QC), with the support of benefactors in the State of Qatar, distributed school supplies to the students from low-income and underprivileged families in Bangladesh’s Cox’s Bazar district, aiming to meet the school needs of the students and lessen the economic burden on their parents.
As many as 200 students from different grades of ‘Kabi Jashim Uddin High School’ in Kutubdia island of Cox’s Bazar have received the school supplies that included school bags, uniforms, and stationeries.
Mr. Rajab Ali, a government education officer, praised Qatar Charity’s support for the students in Kutubdia Island where most of the people are fishermen who face economic hardships to meet their daily necessities, specially their children’s school needs. He hoped that Qatar Charity would continue supporting other vulnerable students in Kutubdia Island’
“My father works as a laborer at a grocery shop, and can not afford my education expanses,” said Umme Habiba, a 7th grader, indicating that her father struggles to meet daily needs of her family. She expressed her delight with the school supplies she received from Qatar Charity.
“My father is a fisherman and earns a very small amount of money through this work,” said Mohammad Tanvir, a 9th grader, adding that it is very tough for him to continue his schooling without the support from benefactors. He also noted that if the benevolent people continue extending a helping hand to him and other vulnerable students, it would be a great relief form them.
