POHELA BOISHAKH – an event very close to our hearts as Bangalis. For the first time in many of our lives, we will not be able to celebrate it how we do every year. BUT WAIT! Will we really let that stop us? Of course not!
‘World’s 1st Online Pohela Boishakh’ – the first ever live stream event bringing Bangalis all over the world together to celebrate the Bengali New Year. Not only will we be celebrating Pohela Boishakh, but we will also be using this as an initiative to help families affected by COVID-19 in Bangladesh. By donating through our online fundraiser, you will be helping such families receive food and other basic requirements. All our proceeds will be going to “Bidyanda Foundation (aka Ek Takar Ahar)” and “Food Package for Day Labor.”
