  • Published at 02:36 pm March 16th, 2014

The Savar Foundation, a charitable organisation that aims to rehabilitate the Rana Plaza victims, has donated two motorised rickshaws to the family members of two garment workers who died in the building collapse.

The two motorised rickshaws, worth Tk 100,000, have been donated to slain garment workers Sheuli and Bobita’s family members on Sunday.

Garment worker Sheuli Rani Das, 18, who died in the building collapse, was the primary source of earning in her family. After she died, the family has been suffering a lot due to inadequate compensation from the authorities.

Her father Shushanto Kumar Das will now drive the rickshaw, provided by the Savar Foundation and that will help the family to lead a better life.

Sonjoy Moni Das, brother of another slain worker, Bobita Moni Das, 30, has been given the second rickshaw.

The foundation, started soon after the accident last year, is led by Mahdin Mahboob, faculty member of the University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh and has so far raised and distributed over Tk 220,000 for the victims of the Rana Plaza collapse.
