Purdue students raise money for flood victims in Bangladesh
The Bangladeshi Student Association of Purdue has taken the initiative to raise money to support the people affected by the recent flooding in Bangladesh. According to the group’s publicity chairman and a graduate student at Purdue University Md Rejaul Hoq, millions of lives have been displaced by the recent floods in Bangladesh, and many are in urgent need of food and supplies. "Our goal is to raise $5,000 to buy critical supplies and distribute aid," he wrote in an email, and on their Facebook fund-raising page which was set up Friday. "Your donation will provide [the] much-needed relief for those displaced by the flood. Your money can help after-effects of flood affected poor people too.” Around $600 has been raised, so far. The page is called BDSA Purdue Flood Relief Effort 2017 on Facebook, where the donations can be made.
