I humbly request all of you to help us with resources, in realizing the need to restart livelihood," she added.
WEA has already started effective work to help the underprivileged and needy artisans with funds, so they can start their means of livelihood with immediate effect.
The WEA charity shop on the Facebook has already become very popular, where members and caring friends are helping by donating goods which are being sold at less than half price to start an emergency fund to help the needy entrepreneurs with utmost urgency.
This project will continue till all the families in this pandemic, that we are taking care of, are set and on their feet again.
"Please donate generously-they need your help, they need to survive," said, Tootli Rahman.
