President's Note

According to both the holy Qur'an and the holy Bible, the shortest route to satisfy one's Creator is to serve His creatures. This was perhaps the guiding principle of Md. Rafiqul Islam, a devotedly religious man, when, in 1985, he contacted a few social­ welfare-minded persons in Gaibandha town along with a few bankers, and started Karmirhath, a non-profit humanitarian organization.

Karmirhath has been working in other's premises since its inception. Time has come to give it a permanent abode. We are working hard to this effect and hopeful about finding a suitable site in near future.Abdus Sobhan President

Ever since its inception, Karmirhath has been engaged in different humanitarian pro­grams that were directly related to helping the needy. In the pursuit of rendering humanitarian services to the less privileged people in the society, Karmirhath worked also in collaboration with reputed national and international organizations.
