DRMC SOCIAL SERVICE CLUB

DRMC SOCIAL SERVICE CLUB is one of the noteworthy clubs of Dhaka Residential Model College. This is a club dedicated to serve the distressed and afflicted section of society. A considerable section of people in our society are living below the poverty line and leading an underprivileged life. We as the concerning members of the society have some duties to them. This club endeavours heart and soul to build up the students, the future generation of the country in a productive way and also raise moral and ethical values in them by ensuring proper socialization. It is necessary to teach students the importance of helping these distressed people and other socially accepted values. It is necessary to nurture the sense of social work for the overall welfare for every section of people. Harbouring  this notion in mind, DRMC SOCIAL SERVICE CLUB has been established to socialize the students infusing humanity and fellow feeling for all people and ensuring unitary  cooperation in multifarious social activities which will create an urge to help these distressed people from heart and ensure upliftment of moral and human values and etiquettes.

Our motto:
DRMC SOCIAL SERVICE CLUB is a dedicated club to serve the humanity. In our way of life, we often find people very helpless. We feel upset on their laments and outpourings of hues and cries. They really suffer a lot for the lacking of basic necessities of life. They are so unfortunate. The conditions of people living in slums, shirts and other short tents are so pathetic. They need a helping hand to make their lives better. Students are the future generations of our country. We strongly believe that it is extremely necessary (as a social being) to extend a helping hand to these distressed and afflicted people. We also strongly believe that one person can make a difference and everyone should try.

We arrange seminars on different social issues, collect donations from different organizations and individuals to promote and support our welfare works and we endeavour to create a direct platform for students to be engaged in various social welfare activities and it helps to make them realise the actual sufferings of life. It infuses sympathy, compassion for these helpless people and an urge to do something good for them. Our motive is to prepare our tomorrow with the knowledge of proper socialization, love and the urge to change people's fate by doing good for them.

CLUB DESCRIPTION AND HISTORY:

We humans are social beings. Our hearts are made to share love and fellow feelings for others in the society. Heart cannot feel contentment and gets engulfed with black strains of grievance when it fails to render love and cooperation to others. To live with peace and harmony in society, we have to cooperate with each other in our lives. Sorrows and pains are to be shared and unitedly solved. There are people in our society who are distressed and depressed. They don't have food to eat, shelter to live. In a nutshell, they are deprived of everything. As a social being we all have some duties towards these distressed and afflicted people. We have a duty to extend our hand of cooperation to them. And this benevolent act has to be practiced since the initiation of student life.

So, with the view to making students conversant with the distressful conditions of the people of our society, to elevate their moral and civic sense and to involve them in social welfare works our honourable principal Sir, Brigadier General Kazi Shamim Farhad (NDC, PSC) initiated to inaugurate this club in 2019.

Events:

DRMC SOCIAL SERVICE CLUB since its inception has been arranging multifarious welfare activities to uplift the sense of duty to society. And the spontaneous support and vigorous participation of the students and other important members of the institution has given a new momentum to the events.

Winter clothes distribution:

Perhaps winter is a season of hovering around the beautiful freezy mornings bundling ourselves up in warm clothes. But not every person in our society are lucky enough to enjoy the amazing features of a winter morning. Especially in Dhaka city we often find people suffering from the cold in the streets, slums and other related places. The sufferings of children and the old people are beyond our imagination. We feel so disheartened to find them suppressed in fog and mist.
To save these people from the freezing cold effect, in 2020 we appeared to them with our warmth of a soft corner and wrapped them up in warm clothes. We roamed about different slums in the streets of Dhaka, at midnight we tried hard and soul to find repressed people in the streets, footpaths and other spots. We continued our programme for 2 weeks and donated to a good section of distressed people.

Assistance during Covid-19 pandemic:

Covid-19 has just ravaged the world economy. In the initiation stage the economic condition of people was getting significantly downtrodden. The tension of feeding the family and running expenses hung in the air. The black strains of covid-19 also aggrieved the people of our country. The economic condition of the people specially (middle and lower income) was drastically getting smeared in sludge. The financial activities almost became standstill. The condition of poor families was beyond imagination. There was hunger, poverty and tension hung in the air.

During this pandemic, Old Remain Welfare Association (ORWA) in association and collaboration with DRMC SOCIAL SERVICE CLUB donated different daily necessities like ( rice grain, lentil grain, oil, salt, soap, potato, onion etc) to almost 1000 people. We tried to the highest level of repressed and afflicted people of covid-19 economic crash and successfully tried to bring a smile to their face.

Other activities during the ongoing pandemic:

Due to the zombie apocalypse coronavirus , to prevent community transmission the country has kept the educational institution closed since march 2019. During this time the students were suffocated in uncertainty and tension. It affected their mental health in the worst way. So to help the students maintain a sound mental health DRMC SOCIAL SERVICE CLUB arranged multifarious online seminars and other programmes.

DRMC SOCIAL SERVICE CLUB arranged an online seminar by inviting some reputed professional doctors to the seminar where the honourable doctors suggested the students and their parents about do’s and don’ts during the ongoing pandemic and also to help keep their mental health sound.

During this pandemic healthcare soldiers and soldiers in the field (police, army and other relevants) directly supported the people and worked hard to prevent community transmission and ensure better health for all taking risks of their life. It is important to realise students for their valiant contribution. So to show respect to their works DRMC SOCIAL SERVICE CLUB arranged an online event naming " Shongkote Shongramme " where the students had to make a ‘2 minutes film’ depicting the struggles and showing homage to the valiant workers.

Iftar distribution in Ramadan:

Ramadan is a holy month. This is the month of charity, fellow feelings and compassion. And iftar is perhaps the most awaiting period for us as we are served with delicious and appetizing food at home. We also find restaurants selling lavishing and nutritious foods. But all in our society are not lucky enough to satisfy their hunger of saum with delicious foods. The poor people struggle a lot with their inner feelings of being failed to have those food stuffs. Due to performing the tiring saum sometimes as they don't get sufficient food they fall ill. Really the scenario is pathetic and grim.

So to earn the blessing of God and to bring happiness in their faces DRMC SOCIAL SERVICE CLUB distributed iftar almost 200 packets of food. The poor people were scrutinized and maintained proper social distance food packets were given in the second gate along with our club coordinator, club moderator teachers and EC members and our honourable Principal Sir was present. Really we could see their happy faces and hearts felt inner containment.

Raincoat distribution programme:

Rainy season is a season of enjoying rain. It rains all day long, sometimes it drizzles. We sit by a window and while sipping a coffee get romantic with the falling sound of droplets of rain. But the picture is grim again. The helpless people are always helpless.

They have needs, they can’t enjoy life in whims and caprices like us. So by defying heavy downpour and all olds specially the rickshaw pullers paddle their rickshaw to meet their both ends meet. They don't have sufficient money to buy a raincoat for them. They often fall ill.


So to save the rickshaw pullers of Dhaka city from the undaunted sufferings of rain we went to them with the warmth of love. We donated some raincoats to these helpless rickshaw pullers. We collected donations and allowings from inner sources and tried our level best to help humanity.

Our programme with CAPTAIN EARTH BE THE CHANGE :


Mental health has to be kept sound. Students are the future generations of the country. It is necessary to let their soft skills grow and make them infused with moral and ethics and also to make them respectful to the members of our society.

So DRMC SOCIAL SERVICE CLUB in collaboration with CAPTAIN EARTH be the change worked on this project of ensuring sound mental health. We also arranged a Facebook live session with them.

Clean and tidiness survey:

Currently along with covid-19 the prevalence of dengue has become a major concern for us. It is necessary to keep our nearby places clean to stop the breeding of Aedes mosquito (Dengue causal organism). So DRMC SOCIAL SERVICE CLUB initiated to run a 5 day long Dengue surveillance awareness cleaning programme to promote the importance of keeping surroundings clean. The event was inaugurated by our honourable principal Brigadier Kazi Shamim Farhad(NDC, PSC) sir. Our honourable club moderator and club co-moderator sirs were present in the session.

CONCLUSION


A Cordial request of your kind collaboration with the club:

DRMC SOCIAL SERVICE CLUB is always trying to help the distressed and afflicted people of the society. We always try to extend our hand of cooperation to the people who are suppressed in their way of life and depressed by their failure to attain a comfortable life. We arrange seminars, aware people and give financial assistance to individuals to make their life better. We earn money, spend for our own upliftment, that's not life. We go out, seek for people who need our assistance and the day we realise that for our help a person didn't give up, that's the day we actually lead a true life. And our club is trying hard and soul to realise the ethical sense of morality to students by extending the cooperating hand to helpless people of our society. For this we need a good amount of financial grant from organizations and respective individuals.
So we humbly urge upon every section of people of our society to merge a hand of cooperation to us by donating as much as you can. We strongly pledge to you that your contribution will definitely reach the people who need it the most and we are committed to that. In sha Allah.

Lastly, we would like to say that we all want to live in society with peace and harmony. Happiness and Mutual respect can be earned by mutually cooperating with each other. We often find people in very stressful conditions in their life. Some don't have food to eat, some don't have shelter and more with multifarious problems. Really it is very pathetic to find them tense and sad. But we all humans resemble a unitary body. When one organ is affected the whole body should respond to the wailing. That is the true realm of life. Similarly it is necessary to be with them if you need our assistance. It's not about how much we did for them, it's about how much affection we have put into the action. So people from every section of society should give a hand to remove sorrows and sufferings. We need Bangladesh to be free from poverty and ensure a better place to live for everyone.
