A statement issued by IHRC Peace Ambassador Elias Siraj Sir and co-signed by the Zonal Co-ordinator Taz Mohammad in Bangladesh disclosed that the awareness program has become imperative to educate the general public and help curtail the fast spread of the virus. In view, awareness vests and masks were distributed among day laborers, van drivers, and common people in Godagari Upazilas of Rajshahi District.
The awareness program was attended by the International Human Rights Commission Team Leader of Godagari Upazila and General Secretary of Bangladesh; Muktiyuddha Mancha Godagari, Upazila Branch Md; Walidur Rahman (Maruf).
Others who participated were indigenous members including Shahidul Islam Kishore, Jihad, Zahid, Sajal, and Sihab.
