I am Shamimur rahman PhD, working as the country Director of Basic Needs Program since July 2022. I am student of Economics but I proudly introduce myself as a development worker who is working in the field of development in Bangladesh for more than 20 years. I obtained my PhD from Bologna University, Italy. Basic Needs Program is committed to treat thousands of underprivileged children who has been suffering from congenital heart diseases. In our country, thousands of children are born with this disease and die without getting proper treatment or surgery. These surgeries are expensive and we try to provide economic assistance to these poor households so that it does not become a burden for them. We also attach them with our selected hospitals and doctors so that they get an easier access towards them. Till now, we saved 52 lives who are all doing very well. And through it we brought back the smile to our kids and we also brought peace to these household. We will continue do this good work in Bangladesh and our mission is that not a single child should die from this terrible disease without surgery.
