With a population surpassing 165 million, Bangladesh stands as one of the world’s most densely populated nations. While it boasts abundant greenery and beautiful waterways, its geographic position renders it susceptible to frequent natural disasters like floods, cyclones, and earthquakes.
Sadly, the harsh realities of poverty afflict millions of Bangladeshis, casting shadows over their lives. Among the most vulnerable victims are children, who are forced into labour, early marriages, or even fall prey to trafficking, all in a desperate bid to support themselves and their families.
