Asian: Bangladesh

(old site)

I (Sal) was surfing the internet and found this website, which I was reminded of a UMM student from this country. I remembered him telling me he wanted to get into government back home, which I wonder where he is now? Well, I decided to do a website today (Tuesday, September 20th of 2005) to explore more of this country.

  • "MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - Instead of being donated to a thrift shop or thrown away when the season's over, youth soccer jerseys in Mankato are finding new life overseas.
    Parents were lamenting about uniforms being too expensive when someone suggested recycling them. Problem was, no one knew of any organizations that collected and redistributed used soccer uniforms.
    Some online searching came across Muhit Rahman's Web site. Rahman is the Cincinnati-based founder of a nationwide jersey donation program. He was contacted about coordinating a shipment.
    Mankato United's green and white jerseys were soon on their way overseas to Bangladesh.
    Rahman believes that sharing uniforms can help make the world a better place.

    Official Says Bangladesh Cyclone Death Toll Rises Past 2,000 By Jeremy Reynalds Correspondent for ASSIST News Service Sunday, November 18, 2007
    "BANGLADESH (ANS) -- The death toll from tropical cyclone Sidr in Bangladesh rose to more than 2,000, with more than 1.5 million people living in temporary shelters, a disaster management official said today....

    World Vision said that the triangular shape of the Bay of Bengal funnels storm surge waters into Bangladesh, with the surge worsened by the shallow water. Of the 13 deadliest cyclones recorded, nine occurred in this bay. The biggest — and the only Category 5 cyclone to hit Bangladesh so far — was in 1991. A 30-foot storm surge near the coast of Chittagong killed 143,000 people. But the biggest death toll to hit Bangladesh as a result of such a storm occurred in 1970, when more than 500,000 people died.
    The government of Bangladesh declared the cyclone a 10 — the highest on their hazard scale — for the Mongla area. Bangladesh has a population of 142 million; of these, nearly 10 million live along the southern coast.

    "...Relief workers are struggling to get help to hard-hit areas. Vincent Edwards with World Vision Bangladesh says the storm leveled a lot of Bangladeshi homes and those people left homeless need a place to stay.
    World Vision and other relief agencies will help where they can to provide humanitarian aid and support. Christian relief agencies are praying that there will be opportunities to share the Gospel with those who have been affected. Click here if you can help."
