To celebrate International Volunteers’ Day, China Harbour Engineering Company Limited (CHEC) -- a state-owned Global Fortune 500 company of China -- held an event at Mogadia Union Govt Primary School in Mirsarai of Chattogram on Thursday.
Wang Zhenhong, Deputy Managing Director of CHEC Bangladesh; Md Zahangir Master, Chairman of Mogadia Union Council; and Md Nurul Gani, President of Mogadia Govt Primary School managing committee were present on the occasion, a press release said.
“Building… a strong nation is not possible without well-developed education. We (CHEC) never forget about our social commitments to the people of this country,” Zhenhong said while speaking at the event.
CHEC also distributed various school supplies among the students, and gave scholarships to a number of meritorious but financially disadvantaged students at the event.
The company also donated sports facilities to the school.
