RaziyaBewya is widow of 4 children who lives in Kamalpur, a small village along the bank of Jamuna River. Her husband died few years ago. Being a widow in a male dominated society, such as Bangladesh, is challenging for her and her children. On 28 August 2014, the dyke/dam of the Jamuna River broke and the whole village was flooded. Raziya and her family were directly impacted by this situation and her house was flooded by river water. She also lost her cattle and crops because of the flood water. Her situation was very challenging and her family had to take shelter in nearby relative’s house, where the land was not flooded.
When she returned home, after the flood water went down, there was nothing left. It was hard for her and her children to survive in this situation, no food or drinking water. In this situation FH Bangladesh in partnership with Tear Fund UK and World Renew, extend its hand for cooperation. They were able to provide a small goat so she can start making money by raising the goat. She says, “I am very happy to get the goat. I am also thankful to all of you for your support.”
