Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

Alhamdulillah, Canada Bangladesh Muslim Community (CBMC) will be organizing its 5th annual blood donor clinic

Dear CBMC,

As Salamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu. Hope you all are having a blessed Ramadan.

In the past, you supported the Ahsania Mission Cancer Hospital in Bangladesh. In this blessed month, I am asking your support again for the poor cancer patients in Bangladesh. There are 1.2 million cancer patients in the country at any given time and more than 0.1 million death every year. For over 160 million people, we have 500 beds for cancer patients in public hospitals and 200 cancer specialists in total in the country.

The Ahsania Mission Cancer Hospital is working to provide cancer treatment to the poor patients who otherwise have no access to the expensive treatment. At present, 250 beds have been commissioned and will go up to 500 beds. On a daily average, 160 patients are now receiving radiotherapy, 45 patients chemotherapy, and nearly 100 are admitted as an in-patient. In the last year, 3,484 cancer patients got treatment from Jakat money (62,80,807 BDT).

As the hospital’s representative in Canada, I will facilitate your donation to the hospital, 100% of your donation will be given to the hospital. You will be provided a receipt and acknowledgment e-mail from the hospital administration. You may contribute via e-transfer, cash, or cheque.

In this month of Ramadan and beyond, I urge you to open your heart and give hope to the cancer patients in Bangladesh.
Wish you all blessed Ramadan and a blissful Eid-ul-Fitr.
