Mojar School celebrates Qurbani Eid 2021 with Street Children & Uprooted People
Festival Celebration in The Poverty-stricken Lives
Eid is all about joy and happiness. The underprivileged are struggling to survive every day. The festivals come and go, but their lifestyle, unaffected by those. They surely do see the people around them celebrating various types of festivities. Although, underprivileged people don’t get to enjoy them because of their poverty-stricken lives.
Now the COVID-19 pandemic has made their survival fight tougher than before. Those who had small businesses or used to have roadside business are going through a vast economic downfall. Even many big corporations have fallen during this pandemic situation. The underprivileged people who could afford to celebrate Eid-al-Adha with the littlest they had, have fallen victim to the pandemic. Many are in dire financial states; they had to leave the city and go back to their hometowns. The small celebration they used to enjoy has been unthinkable for the underprivileged people since the pandemic started.
Not to mention the children living on the streets, they don’t have families to celebrate their Eid. Neither are they capable enough to enjoy Eid on their own. Their struggle doesn’t seem to be replaced by any festivals or celebrations. In this devastating situation, Mojar School made sure the street children and needy people got the chance of feasting and enjoying their Eid. With the support from generous well-wishers, Mojar School was able to spread the joy of Eid-al-Adha among the street children and underprivileged people.
Mojar-School Celebrating Qurbani Eid with The Underprivileged
From 22nd to 23rd July 2021, Mojar School ensured a nutritious Eid feast for 1443 street children and underprivileged people in 4 points in Dhaka (Gulistan and Shaympur) and Barisal – Bhola (South Sakuchia – Monpura 1 and Kajir Char – Monpura 2). Among them, 600 were the street children and uprooted people in Dhaka, and 734 were the underprivileged children and families in Bhola, Barisal. Our well-wishers have ensured four cows for the street children and underprivileged people.
These street children do not usually get to eat good food regularly. They eat a meal to fill their stomach and don’t worry about hunger till the next day. After receiving their Eid meal, all of them had the satisfaction and a huge smile on their faces. This smile and look in there is what keeps Mojar School’s team members and volunteers encouraged to continue our work. And because of our well-wishers and team members, Mojar School is successfully providing the street children and underprivileged with all the nutritious food and happiness. Mojar School will never stop making the lives of street children a bit better and healthier even in such devastating situations. We will continue our journey with the support from generous people like you to build a street-child-free Bangladesh.
