Azizul Hoque needs to be debt free to survive

Azizul Haque is a 65 year old poor guy with 2 daughters and a son, from Faridpur district. Due to his illness he has a taken loan of BDT 30,000 from local merchants at 10% interest rate with no fixed term. Now to repay this he needs to pay 250 taka daily through rickshaw pulling. He has paid more than 15000 taka but his principal amount remains same. This will go on and he will hardly be able to pay the principal as the profit is 100 taka per thousand evert month. No matter how much he pays, it goes in the profit/interest amount and the principal remains same. He needs to get rid of this and start a small business to survive better.

JIBIKA has estimated an amount of BDT 55,000 to accomplish the mission. This will clear-up his dues in next 4 months and also enable him to start fresh with a vendor business.

UPDATE:

We have paid of all his dues. Now we need 10,000 taka to arrange him a sustainable living. He wants to buy a rickshaw and give it for rent. This way he will earn 3000 taka a month. And he will earn something by himself. When he has a moderate amount of money saved, he may move to his village and start a business there. To help him, please DONATE HERE

We donated further 7500 taka and he bought a rickshaw with his equity of 2000 with it. He is happy now and living a better life.

Feed the Poor in Ramadan

JIBIKA wants to feed at least 20 persons per night including children who live on streets and are have-nots or working poor. We would buy them a dinner pack (polao/tehari/biriyani+water) for each of last 10 days of Ramadan. Every night, we shall feed 20 new people. So our target is to feed at least 200 people in 10 nights within Dhaka and Chittagong. The average cost per meal per person would be BDT 100 (USD 1.25) only. So we are looking for a fund of at least BDT 20,000 or USD 250. Please come forward and sponsor as many meal as you can.

UPDATES:

JIBIKA Foundation in Collaboration with Littleangelsbd.com has started a Campaign where LittleAngels will donate 100 taka for each of its transaction exceeding 800 taka to sponsor a meal to an underprivileged child/person. This is valid for the last 10 days of Ramadan. So if you are looking for buying stuff for your kids, please visit Little Angels at Banani 11.

Finally we ended up feeding 800+ people. Thank you all for supporting. Below is a small video to give you an idea of our campaign.

Help Ashfaqur Survive to Fight Cancer

Dewan Ashfaqur Rahman, A 38 year old young BUET Graduate and SAVP of Midland Bank is suffering from Bone Cancer in Spinal Cord area. He is the only son of his parents and his father passed away long ago. Ashfaq has a beautiful family like many of us but his fate deceived him this time. With a 5 year old daughter he is left with nothing but a life-taking disease which put him into a question whether he can live enough to see his daughter growing in front of him. Upon diagnosis of the disease, he went to Bangkok and spent 15 lac baht (BDT 70 lacs) on his treatment. He had to sell his valuable belongings/assets to manage this fund. He is back in Bangladesh now and diagnosed to be in 4th stage of cancer. He needs another 3 chemo therapies and an expensive diagnosis test to give him hope to live further. He needs 5 lacs taka (USD 6000) for that. His wife told me that they are finding it difficult now to even continue their daughter’s education and living expense.

If you are a father or a wife, you can understand the pain and emotional breakdown this family is going through. The 5-year child has no fault and should not lose her father at such an early age.
