                  (Continued from last article.)
                  My second purpose of visiting Dhaka was to observe a Down-syndrome-related project which AMDA Bangladesh has been eagerly promoting. Focusing on children with Down syndrome, the project aims to provide support and care to both the children and their parents alike. It has been close to 10 years since AMDA Bangladesh Director Mr. Sarder A. Razzak launched this initiative at his own house. The activity has grown into a national movement, followed by international accreditation in which the project was officially certified by a global organization specialized in this field.

                    One noteworthy-yet-surprising fact about recent Bangladesh is its robust economic development. The newly-debuted international airport is a perfect example of its yearly 8% GDP growth which exceeds that of India’s 6%. The trademark smoggy skies are no longer there and people out in the streets looked confident than ever; all of which I failed to notice in my last visit as I headed directly to Cox’s Bazar for the Rohingya relief a year ago. This time, I made my five-day trip to see my colleagues in Dhaka in late April.

                      Late PRRM President Mr. Gani

                      In May 2019, I visited Bataan in the Philippines to pay tribute to late Mr. Isagani “Gani” R. Serano who used to head the Philippine Rural Reconstruction Movement (PRRM). PRRM is a national NGO dedicated to uplifting impoverished farming communities by providing agricultural assistance.
