This is the words of a mother, Maloti, who has a disable son. “My son Johurul (23yrs) cannot speak or hear. He has had this condition since he was a child. I have two other daughters and they also have the same condition.”
Maloti’s husband died 15 years ago and since then she is has to manager her family by herself. This situation is always difficult but it’s especially challenging when you have 3 disable family members.
Jahurul is deaf and life is very hard for him and his 2 sisters, who are in the same situation. None of them received an education because there are no schools in their community who provides education to children with special needs. On 28 August 2014, the dyke/dam of the river broke and the whole village got flooded by river water. Jahurul and his family had to move to another safe location so they can survive. But passing the days without any food or clean drinking water was very hard for all of them. In this situation, the 3 organizations extended a helping hand of support to them. FH Bangladesh with the partnership with Tear Fund UK and World Renew provided support to his family by providing food items.
Jahurul’s mother, Maloti says, “We passed our days without food but the food FH provided, brought us much relief. I am very grateful for all of your support.”
