Many business men in Bangladesh do calculate that if they can raise the price of any essential commodity like sugar 5 to 10 tk per kg in the month of Ramadan they can gain huge profit, where the country’s population is more than 140 million people.
But Julia Jandt, a sixth grade student of Paul Klee Gymnasium School in Germany was shocked to see the living condition of some Bangladeshi orphans.
Her mother works for a German apparel import company and took her daughter to Darul Alam orphanage during her holiday last July.
She (the girl) went back to Germany, she and her class mates went house to house and requested money for the Bangladeshi orphans. Eventually they were able to raise 1030 Euros and committed to raise 15,000 euros from their school to help the orphanage so that it can construct a building.
In her letter she had written, ‘We wanted to help you when we saw pictures about the life in your country… We hope the money can help you to do things that you wish to do,’.
Darul Alam orphanage of Dalipara in Uttara was established in 1990.
