Beat the Heat with Splash of Kindness

The word “heatwave” echoes everywhere, dominating the news as we endure its relentless grip. While some fortunate individuals have the luxury of air conditioning to shield themselves from the scorching heat, rickshaw pullers, day laborers and others toil tirelessly under the relentless sun, often without the privilege of such relief.

Keeping the urgency of the condition in mind as well as a gesture of compassion and community spirit, the Bangladesh Medical College Local Committee (BMC LC), under the Standing Committee on Human Rights and Peace (SCORP), Bangladesh Medical Students’ Society (BMSS) and in collaboration with Future Flare Foundation organized a remarkable event titled “Splash of Kindness: Providing Refreshment and Relief”. The event aimed to provide refreshment and relief to individuals enduring the scorching heat wave.

With meticulous planning and dedication, the organizers set up a Free Hydration Station promptly at 9:00 AM, offering a respite for passersby. As the sun climbed higher in the sky, the volunteers of BMCLC, BMSS sprang into action, distributing revitalizing juice at 10:00 AM. This simple yet impactful initiative aimed to combat dehydration and promote the importance of staying hydrated, particularly in the sweltering heat.

At 10:30 AM, they distributed Free Caps and Hand fans, providing immediate relief from the oppressive weather conditions. Volunteers came up with a creative approach, distributing these while also raising awareness by printing essential heat wave Dos and Don’ts, consumption of saline in a proper way on Hand Fans.

As the day drew to a close, the impact of “Splash of Kindness: Providing Refreshment and Relief” resonated throughout the community, leaving behind a legacy of goodwill and support. It serves as a testament to the tireless dedication of organizations and individuals committed to making a positive difference in the lives of others. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the future Flare Foundation for their invaluable collaboration on our event. 

This initiative wasn’t just about battling the heat; it’s about creating a ripple of kindness that touches hearts and minds. Through unity and compassion, we can overcome any challenge, no matter how daunting it may seem.
