Blankets distributed @ The Dhaka Project

“Diamonds are lying all over the playground.” a student answered when he was asked “What can you see on the ground?””. The teacher was surprised to listen to the imagination power of the students. The dews of early morning were glowing like diamonds as the soft rays of the sun started to come out. Yes its winter in Bangladesh. Pretty hot after 10.00 am but the condition is very different at night when it’s very cold till 7.00 am in the morning.

A big thanks to Emirates Airlines Foundation for donating blankets which The Dhaka Project Team distributed twice in the last two winters and are still left with many. The kids are really happy to get these blankets, which are big enough to cover 2 people; parents were relieved as they won’t have to spend anything for seasonal clothes. Hope that these blankets will give them a good sleep every night before sitting for the Half Yearly Examination next morning.
