Parvin’s Dream

This is Parvin Begum, she was married and had two baby boys. Unfortunately her husband married another woman and left Parvin and her two sons. They lead a miserable life for a couple of years and then she divorced him. She does not want to remarry. She dreams of sending her two sons to school but she does not have any money. So far she lead her family with the support of her brother who is also poor.

Last month, I met with her and asked her to learn sewing. She learned it in a month as she knew some before.

What a love story: Gazol Bhai can rest in peace knowing P4H is taking care of Komla Banu

Komla Banu, I call her Dadi (grandmother). Her husband, Gazol vai was a very funny and emotional person. He loved his wife so much. One day he watched a movie named “Komlar Bonobas”, the heroine’s name was Komla, the same as his wife who was sent to bonobas (Bonobas means forced to leave from house and sent to outside of civilization). I noticed that Gazol vai was weeping, I asked him “why are you crying?” He said ” I love your dadi so much.” Then I realized that he loves his wife so much that he could not tolerate a girl bearing his wife’s name,
