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 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.
