Some video clips from my visit to Jessore, Bangladesh volunteering with Habitat for Humanity.
(Tx 10 Oct 09) At a time of life when people are preparing for their easier days of retirement, Libby Laing took up the challenge of working as a volunteer in one of the poorest areas, of one of the poorest countries, in the world, Bangladesh. Libby spends several months each year, working alongside another New Zealander, Dr Edric Baker .. and because of her extensive training as a Plunket Nurse, has been able to successfully establish a much-needed 'mother and child' health-care service. But working in Bangladesh was definitely not something which Libby Laing had originally planned to do, as she explained to Allan Lee.
The movie is based on the journey to the Cyclone Sidr affected Zones of Bangladesh in 2007
A song about a year volunteering in Bangladesh
Two extraordinary small schools doing amazing work with children and people with special needs--both of which are now in dire need of funding for bricks and solor panels. For a look at the most exciting, picnic-bus-ride ever, please watch the following 5 minute video.
Click "Watch in HD" for best quality image. 2008 was a very busy year for Hands On Disaster Response. The year began with two projects already underway: our earthquake response project in Peru was winding down and our cyclone response project in Bangladesh was just beginning. In the spring we answered the call to help Gassville, Arkansas and Newton County, Missouri after destructive tornados and in June, when massive flooding struck Cedar Rapids, Iowa, we launched a four-month response through which more than 2000 volunteers jumped in and lent a hand. In August and September Haiti was pummeled by four tropical storms and hurricanes that devastated an already struggling nation. Our hurricane response, that started in November and continues into 2009, is helping people dig out and rise up. Whether it was removing rubble in Peru, building a home in Bangladesh, or gutting out a house in Iowa, HODR was there helping families around the world rebuild their lives. For a more in depth look at the projects and photos of 2008 visit www.HODR.org
An October 2008 trip to Bangladesh by 6 Canadian volunteers with Sleeping Children Around the World, a Canadian charity that distributes bedkits to children in 33 developing countries.
In February 2008, 2 months after Cyclone Sidr had ravaged the coast of Bangladesh, I participated in a volunteer project organized by Service Civil International (www.sciint.org) which consisted of digging latrines in one of the worst-effected villages. It was a month that opened my eyes to what climate change really means, these villages, these people, these kids, have absolutely no chance to survive in their homes as sea levels rise and extreme weather events become more common. When you read about or listen to information regarding climate change, forget about statistics and numbers and try to imagine being one of these kids.
This video represents my country Bangladesh, feel proud to be a Bengali.
The Shishu Tori Sangstha project in Dhaka, Bangladesh provides food, clothes, shelter, healthcare, basic education and activities for some of the city's 200000 street children. Volunteers work on the Schools Under the Sky programme, helping to teach basic literacy and numeracy, and organise recreational activities in the three informal open-air schools which are held in a railway station, a vegetable market and a park in Dhaka.
