Living with Calamities

By Tasnimur Rabbi | Project Leader

Talking with Local Fishermen about Calamities
Talking with Local Fishermen about Calamities

The life in the South-West coastal regions of Bangladesh is challenging. Natural calamities, sudden disasters and aftershock hazards are their day-to-day companions. While talking with a villager in Mathurapur village under Shyamnagar sub-district of Khulna district, we came to learn about his miserable life with disasters.

Mr. Kedar said that most of the village dwellers live in khas land (lands under Bangladesh Water Development Board). Fish and crab catching is their main occupation, which is a difficult task itself in the challenging environment of Sundarbans.  In rainy season they use rain water for daily purposes and other times they collect water from nearby temple.

Mr. Kedar has two disabled children which add in the misery. During disaster like cyclone all the family members are unable to go to the cyclone centre because the two cyclone centers situated in the area don’t have adequate facilities for all villagers.

BEDS training centre has been a ray of hope for the local people and they are giving as much facilities as possible. We are trying to build disaster management committee in every community and provide help when in need.

We are extremely grateful to our donors for their continuous support. We would like to request all our donors to start monthly recurring donations for our project. We are requesting all our donors to start monthly recurring donations. Please click the following link;
