Dr. Simmen M. Akhtar, President of Zonta Club of Greater Dhaka, said during the Covid-19 pandemic there are many people in the health care sector working behind the scene. “Being involved in this sector I saw that these people remain unknown. They are the heroes who are not being seen. So we reached out to different institutions to identify people that they felt were creating a difference in different ways during the pandemic.

Past President of Zonta Club of Greater Dhaka Sonya Panni said, In recognition of the women and the girls who have brought change in people’s lives we have arranged this ceremony. The women we have awarded have done exemplary works during the COVID-19 pandeic. Though Rose Day is on 8 March and coincides with International women’s day we are celebrating it on 13 March this year. We celebrate this day every year.
