Mrs. Rafeya Rahman’s love for her daughter Samia overcame the barriers of distance, time and even her physical challenges. Samia Akter Safia is one of our KG students of JAAGO Foundation Rayer bazar branch school. She is the sponsored daughter of Mrs. Rafeya, who lives in a far land of United Kingdom. But she never lets this distance come between the love and bond she shares with her daughter Samia. She takes regular updates of Samia and treats Samia just like her family member.
Every month both of them eagerly wait for their favourite Skype sessions. Samia loves her sponsor parent and waits for the pictures she sends her. This year, Mrs. Rafeya came for a very short stay in Bangladesh. Inspite of her shortage of time, Mrs. Rafeya made sure to visit her sponsor daughter at our JAAGO Foundation Rayer Bazar branch School. Along with her husband and elder son; she gave a surprise visit to Samia and all her classmates. She and her family not only visited Samia but also presented her with a bag full of beautiful gifts and snacks for the whole class. Even from a distance, Mrs. Rafeya takes every opportunity to connect and to know Samia.
Our heartiest gratitude to Mrs. Rafeya for being such an amazing soul and taking such good care of Samia.
