Gones is a second-grade student from a poverty-stricken family in Bahadurpur. He lives with his younger brother, who is in kindergarten, and his parents. His father is a bamboo product manufacturer and seller, while his mother is a housewife.

After cyclone Amphan in 2020, their house was damaged, but the family did not have the financial means to rebuild their house and was forced to live in a neighbouring house. The family sustains itself on the low income earned by the father (about BDT 5,500 per month) and has barely leftover after household expenses to repair the house.

Two months later, WCB provided cash support of BDT 5,000 to Gones’ family, allowing them to repair their house. After their house was repaired, Gones’ family was overjoyed. Gones and his brother were able to return to studying at home as normal.

In addition, after completing their homework, they also help with their father’s work. Gones’ parents are very happy and have noticed an improvement in their children’s behaviour and attitude after the house was repaired. Their family has left a deep impression and good testimony on their neighbours.
