World Vision Bangladesh and The Daily Star jointly present to you "Hidden Heroes" - a video series where we portray real stories of ordinary people with extraordinary impact during this global pandemic.
In the Second Episode, we look into the story of Tasrin, who has significantly helped the community by making 5000 masks within few days. She gave the masks to the Union Parisad Chairman for distributing among the poor people. In addition, Tasrin distributed the masks in the community by herself and disseminated awareness messages related to personal hygiene, key messages on prevention and transmission of COVID-19 and suggested people keep a physical distance and wear masks.
Tasrin is now the hero of her area. She knows as Apa (madam/sister) in her community. When she roams around her community everybody respects her. Her reputation is now remarkable in her area. She is what we call a Hidden Hero - an ordinary person who has risen to make an extraordinary impact, empowered by the proven experience of World Vision.
