Mushfiqur to launch foundation to support vulnerable people

Dhaka, May 28: After Mashrafe Bin Mortaza and Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim is set to engage himself in humanitarian works by establishing his own organisation, which he named as “MR-15 Foundation”.One of the most successful cricketers in the country, Mushfiqur Rahim has been helping the people after the Covid-19 pandemic hit Bangladesh hard.
He has already donated 50 percent of his salary and simultaneously auctioned his bat, with which he scored country’s maiden double century, to
collect Taka 17 lakh.
In addition, in a joint venture with Shakib Al Hasan Foundation, Mushy donated food items, medical equipment to the destitute people and
organisations in different parts of the country. He also extended monetary support to net bowlers, groundsmen and vulnerable cricketers and people.
Mushfiqur said he is going to set up the “MR-15 Foundation” to assist these people on a larger scale, adding its work will begin very soon.
“I think, the time has come to give Bangladeshi people back as they supported me wholeheartedly in the last 15 years,” Mushfiqur said in a Facebook live on
Tuesday night on the eve of completing his 15 years to international cricket.“In a bid to repay their (people) debt, I’ve taken some initiatives, and
first of which is to launch my dream project MR-15 Foundation. You’ll be delighted to know that its activities will commence very soon,” he said.
The fans will select the logo of the foundation, Mushfiqur said, adding that he has invited the fans to send the design (of the logo), form which the best five designers will have a chance to take part in a dinner with him at a ‘five star’ hotel when the Covid-19 situation improves.
“My fans will choose the logo (of the foundation). I’m inviting them to send its design. The best five designers will have a scope to join a dinner
with me in a ‘five star’ hotel after the current (pandemic) situation improves,” he said,
Mushi, however, mentioned: “I’ll pick up one logo from these five designs.”
Earlier, former skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza established ‘Narail Express Foundation’ while ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan launched ‘Shakib Al Hasan
