Create Poverty free Bangladesh.

Create Sustainable Solutions that enable the poor to transform their lives  ..

I believe that we can create a poverty-free world because poverty is not created by poor people. It has been created and sustained by the economic and social systems that we have designed for ourselves; the institutions and concepts that make up that system; the policies that we pursue.

Humanitarian Supports to Rohingyas

Last genocides in Rakhaine State by the Mayanmar Army began on August 25th, 2017. According to the UN Refugee Agency more than 723,000 Rohingya fled to Bangladesh to escape from genocide. After sometimes 15 days of walk through difficult hills, forests, water and rivers with serious starvation, the refugees has made it across the border. Particularly pregnant women, children, old and sick people are the worst sufferers. Many Rohingyas were separated from their families and loved ones. Unpleasant weather made the situation worse. These people crossed the border to Bangladesh and escaped from genocide to find a safer and secure life, which would not have been possible without the help and support from People, Bangladesh Government Local and International Organizations. Integrated Development Foundation (IDF) in Bangladesh is also one of the local organizations which immediately started health camps and relief services to these people.

  • Health services through Health Camps which include
  • Health check by qualified doctors
