From its inception Drishtipat has so far successfully
completed three campaigns; the Arsenic Project Campaign,
the Tipu Sultan Campaign and the Cheye Dekho Campaign.
Drishtipat's success came from all the compassionate people
who came forward to support these humanitarian campaigns.
Drishtipat hopes to have continued support from all these
people and more new ones in the future campaigns.
September 2002, Drishtipat completed its third fundraiser
for the Arsenic victims in West Shapania village. The
fund collected has been a little more than what we targeted.
Our original target was $3500 and we collected $3850.
The collected money will be channelled to Brotee via
Bangladesh Environment Network. Brotee already started
mobilizing the village people to form Gono Gobeshona
Dal. The money will be utilized for the pond preservation
(safe drinking water solution) and treatment of the
Arsenicosis victims. More

Tipu Sultan: Medical Treatment of an Oppressed Journalist

back to his life. More...
Dekho : Rehabilitation of the minority oppression victims
of Annada Prasahd
The village Annada Prashad in the
district of Bhola, Bangladesh, predominated by the Hindu
community, saw unprecedented violence upon them immediately
preceding and after the general election of 2001. Almost
two hundred women were raped and hundreds of families
were rendered homeless. The political thugs came down
heavily on the members of the Hindu community. Drishtipat
launched the campaign to help rehabilitate the victims
of Annada Prashad village.
