Have a heart and share your wealth.
Recently, there was a request from a mother whose son Hanook had gone deaf and all she managed was about BD350.
There were also instances of a kidney patient in India requiring bone marrow transplants, a young labourer who died of a heart attack just a few days before he was set to go home to his family after two years in this country... the lists are seemingly endless.
Labourers are the greatest contributors to causes of donation when the bereavement involves fellow labourers.
This is because only people who suffer and undergo painful experiences understand the agony of their fellow beings.
As Mahatma Gandhi said, "The world has enough for everyone's need, but not enough for everyone's greed."
Gandhi said this some 60 years ago. Now the world's wealth has increased enormously, but the poor remain poor.
If only the rich had the heart and willingness to utilise a portion of their wealth for their less fortunate fellow human beings, the world would be a better place to live in.
