Help the poor survive the cold wave
A cold wave sweeping through our country's northern part for two weeks has brought immense suffering to the people of that region. The bitter weather is forcing most people to stay indoors and is affecting their daily lives. Agricultural activities have also been hampered as workers cannot spend enough time in the fields. According to Bangladesh Meteorological Department, the temperature recently dropped to 7.6 degrees Celsius in Tentulia.
People are suffering as they lack warm clothes and blankets. Even though efforts are being made by some NGOs, district administration and concerned citizens, it seems to be falling short. We should all provide, however little we can, to help the underprivileged survive the cold wave.
