On 1st September, twenty-five extreme poor children who receive important services from SAJIDA Foundation’s “Amrao Manush” project enjoyed a day at Burger King, Banani, to celebrate the birthday of the Foundation’s Founder, Late Syed Humayun Kabir. The children were accompanied by SAJIDA Foundation’s higher management as well as Syed Humayun Kabir’s family including his wife Mrs. Sajida Humayun Kabir and his daughter Zahida Fizza Kabir, Executive Director, SAJIDA Foundation.
“We couldn’t think of a better way to spend my father’s birthday,” said Zahida Fizza Kabir, Executive Director, SAJIDA Foundation. “This is what he lived for and these children who are from the poorest backgrounds – he regarded them as part of his family.”
Alongside the special treat for children at Burger King, all of SAJIDA’s programs and offices celebrated the Founder’s birthday with great festivity. Each program under SAJIDA individually held a celebration where members commemorated the day by wearing SAJIDA Blue and sharing stories from the Founder’s life, his commitment towards eradicating poverty, and the foundations he laid out which the organization is built on. Members also held a cake cutting ceremony and a short prayer to pray for Syed Humayun Kabir and his family.
