For some, a routine visit to the dentist is the norm but for many Bangladeshi's this is not the case.
As the majority of the women and children of The Sreepur Village have never ever been to a dentist the prevalence of their dental suffering is quite high.
So, as part of our programme to help rebuild the shattered lives of over 150 women and 400 children, we arrange, twice a year, a dental camp that provides our beneficiaries with a professional screening of dental problems. After examination, and depending on the treatment, some are provided with primary health care whilst others have to be referred to outside hospitals.
It is with the support of our donors that we are able to fund such costly camps so, if you would like to donate towards this much needed treatment then please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Out of the blue, at the tender age of 13, Chia found herself sitting on a bridal stage, about to marry a man who was 35 years old. Her parents had arranged the match, finding the man from their nearby locality in Bhairab.
He was a small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) businessman who occasionally sold vegetables and fruits on the street. Chia's aspirations and youthful dreams were abruptly interrupted by this sudden marriage. Instead of books, she found herself with kitchen utensils in her hands. She went from feeling like a princess to becoming a servant overnight.
Sumi's journey is a testament to her resilience and determination to create a better life for herself and her child. Her success serves as an inspiration to all those facing adversity, reminding us of the transformative power of support, training, and the opportunity to rebuild one's life.
