Call for action – Surpassing Boundaries

“Surpassing Boundaries” is a year-long undertaking of SHEPRO. The campaign is primarily meant to inspire compassion for cancer victims. The campaign agenda involves organizing community events for cancer victims, and raising funds for cancer research and treatment.

If you are aware of any cancer victim who needs our support, feel free to send us details of him/her and how we could help.

Acknowledging our heartfelt gratitude to a generous benefactor

Saiful Latif Sultan is one of the most authoritative names as a Physics teacher in English Medium circles. What people don’t also know is that he is a generous and publicity-shy philanthropist. He has been one of our most prolific patrons, and besides his charitable contributions as a donor he also offers counsel as an Honorary Member to our organization.

SHEPRO would like to acknowledge its debt to Mr. Saiful Latif Sultan for his love, support and guidance to our endeavors. We extend our most heartfelt gratitude and thank him.

SHEPRO donates to children with cancer

Members of SHEPRO made an impromptu visit to the Pediatric Hematology and Oncology ward of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical (PG Hospital) on the 18th of March, 2014. The ward mostly houses children with blood cancer. The visit was made as an attempt to socialize with the patients and their families, and empathize with them. Dr. Farida, one of the doctors who are familiar with the patients of that ward briefed the volunteers about the struggles of the doctors and patients against cancer. The event ended successfully with a donation of Taka 21000 to struggling families for medicine costs by one of our donors, Md. Saiful Latif Sultan. The volunteers commented after the event that their efforts were warmly appreciated by the doctors and the children’s families and the experience was truly humbling.

SHEPRO battles Brahmanbaria Tornado Disaster alongside Journeys For Climate Justice

On March 22, a tornado struck 20 villages of the Brahmanbaria district of Bangaldesh along a monstrous distance of 8 kilometres killing over 35 people and leaving several hundred injured. Homesteads of village families were decimated leaving thousands homeless and thousands of trees and utility poles were stripped and uprooted.

Like many other voluntary platforms, Journeys For Climate Justice took initiative in the event of this disaster. Joined forces by SHEPRO in Bangladesh, the Brahmanbaria Tornnado Aid Project (BTAP) was opened to come to the aid of ailing victims of the tornado in Brahmanbaria.

The responses to this effort were astounding. Contributions in cash and in kind were received from many patrons. Volunteers immediately started visiting the tornado-affected sites distributing aid and providing medical attention to the victims. Besides relief and first aid, BTAP helped rehabilitate the affected families by building sanitary latrines and tubewells for them too.

Besides individual donations, the Brahmanbaria Tornado Aid Project was sponsored by Journeys For Climate Justice, the Canadian Trillinnium School Dhaka, and SHEPRO.

The project objectives had been successfully met and the project was closed after an official evaluation in November 2013.
