FBCCI president thanks PM for giving homes to homeless

The president of Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) Sheikh Fazle Fahim on Monday expressed his gratitude to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on behalf of the private sector for providing houses to homeless families.

“We express sincere gratitude to honourable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for distributing 66,189 plots of land among destitute, homeless families all over Bangladesh as well as rehabilitating 3,715 families in the barracks on the occasion of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s centennial birth anniversary and the golden jubilee of independence,” he said in a statement.

Fahim said such a feat of ensuring safe housing and better living standards for underprivileged families is unique among the many humanitarian initiatives of the Prime Minister. Such initiatives are seldom heard of around the world.

The FBCCI president has called upon individuals and private sector entrepreneurs to come forward and participate in such humanitarian initiatives. Additionally, FBCCI thanked the government for taking various steps to ensure social security.
