The Countrywide Bicycle Ride for #ShapingUpTomorrow
The Countrywide Bicycle Ride for #ShapingUpTomorrow by two enthusiastic, dedicated, and humanitarian cyclists, Mr. Shariful Islam Heron and Mr. Bharul Islam finally came to an end on 23 April. We arranged a brief closing ceremony where we awarded them for their path breaking outstanding contribution in making aware the people all around country towards deformities like #Cleft_Lip & #Cleft_Palate and #Clubfoot.
Mr. Shariful Islam Heron and Bhadarul Islam started rolling their paddles on 6th December 2014 from #Chittagong highlighting the campaign with a mission of travelling all over Bangladesh and finished the journey in#Dhaka on 12th April 2015. Within 127 days, they have traveled 3500+ km and 64 districts.
The program was held in PedrollonkLimiteds’ auditorium in Dhaka. Mr. Nader Khan, Chairman of LMRF, Mr. Imran Khan Director of Pedrollonk Limited, Dr. Shamim Khan, Executive Director of LMRF, Mr. MustafizurRahman, Country Director-Bangladesh of Smile Train USA, Mr. Colin Macfarlane, CEO of Glencoe Foundation attended in the program. As Mr. Shariful Islam Heron and Baharul Islam have shared their feelings about the whole journey, “Still countryside people of Bangladesh are not massively aware as well as do not have mindset about the systematic treatment of clefts and clubfoot deformities. We are excited as well as feel proud being involved in creating awareness all over the country through our bicycle journey of these two acute deformities and we would like to thank #LMRF giving us the opportunity to be familiar and get involve with this humanitarian initiative.”
