Bangladesh U-19 cricketers donate Tk. 2.5 lakh to combat coronavirus
Life has stopped due to coronavirus pandemic. However, the attempt to stand beside the people is not stopped. Government of the country, rich people are standing beside such helpless people. Cricketers are also standing beside the helpless anyway.
This time, a rare example of standing beside the helpless people has set by the U-19 World Cup-winning youth cricketers. Cricketers who are less than 19 years old who still have to rely on their family, they have come forward to help the poor people!
Cricketers Welfare Association of Bangladesh (CWAB) said in a press release yesterday, “The cricketers in the under-19 squad have paid Tk 2.5 lakh in the funds of the CWAB for the coronavirus sufferers.”
“We are all aware that the Cricketers Welfare Association of Bangladesh (CWAB), has taken initiatives to raise financial funds with all current and former cricketers, organizers and well-wishers to help the helpless people affected by the coronavirus nationwide,”
“In that context, all the players and officials of the World Cup-winning Bangladesh Under-19 cricket team, after the first-class cricketers contracted in the country, have collectively decided to give Taka 2.5 lakh to the CWAB fund.”
Appreciating the initiative of the under-19 cricketers, CWAB wrote, “The responsibilities of the under-19 cricketers in this country during this time of misery are very commendable. We, as an organization of cricketers, highly respect this decision. CWAB believes that it is possible to tackle the disaster with the concerted efforts of all.”
