The IEEE Brac University Student Branch is gratified to announce that it has accomplished Project Sporsho, the charity fundraising event to provide Iftar to underprivileged children. IEEE Brac University is appreciative of this opportunity and would like to acknowledge those who assisted in making this event come to fruition. Without the help of donors, volunteers, and administration, none of this would be possible.

As many of you know, the IEEE Brac University Student Branch pioneered significant fundraising efforts to benefit vulnerable children. We were also determined to go above and beyond to alleviate the pain of people who were experiencing a crisis. Two orphanages were chosen, one near West Dhanmondi and the other in Tejgaon. It was important to choose two different orphanages in order to diversify. Because one orphanage was exclusively for boys, while the other was exclusively for girls. Apart from food, we also supplied them with raw supplies that they might use later. The event was held on April 26th and 27th, 2022. A group of volunteers from the IEEE Brac University Student Branch assisted in the management and distribution of the goods. The volunteers also had their iftar with the children from the above-mentioned orphanages.

We were privileged to be able to join in the joy of Ramadan while also listening to the stories of these small kids. We spoke with these kids and told them that they were not alone. It’s a pity that these children have to live in such deplorable circumstances. A tiny act of kindness can make a big difference. The happiness on their faces when we arrived utterly warmed our hearts. A child’s face was brightened by our smallest act of compassion. We know that every life resembles importance when we see the smiles on the faces of people who are being helped. Consider what we could do if we simply started helping to alleviate the pain of many more disadvantaged children.

IEEE is a strong supporter of humanitarian causes. There are a variety of ways to make a large or little contribution to the betterment of humanity. We’d like to thank everyone who gave and helped in other ways to make this event a success. When we work together, we can double our abilities and reach out to communities all around the world, making a difference.

We genuinely hope that we will be able to host a number of these humanitarian activities in the future. It is our modest appeal that you stay with us so that together we can bring smiles to the faces of an increasing number of people. To quote Earvin “Magic” Johnson Jr. (American former professional basketball player), “All kids need is a little help, a little hope, and somebody who believes in them.” Lastly, we earnestly express our hope that may they receive the small favors they ask for, and a cry for help will not go unnoticed.
