I’ve been working as a volunteer at Lighter Youth Foundation since 2019. I am an active volunteer, and I find my inner peace through helping others. Till now, I’ve been a part of many volunteer projects.
Lighter Youth Foundation is a registered Social Charity Organization established in 2014. We believe that if we all work together for the betterment of our country through some small steps, we can change our life. We can enlighten our country as a spark of Light.
Bangladesh has a long history of natural disasters. Between 1980 and 2008, it experienced 219 natural disasters. The geographical location, land characteristics, multiplicity of rivers, and the monsoon climate render Bangladesh highly vulnerable to natural hazards. The coastal morphology of Bangladesh influences the impact of natural hazards on the area. Bangladesh suffers from floods, cyclones, storm surge, riverbank erosion, earthquake, drought, salinity intrusion, fire, and tsunami. Cyclones and floods particularly caused massive damages. Cyclones occurred in 1970, 1991, 2007 and 2009 and killed 364,000, 136,000, 3,363 and 190 respectively.
