Kaiyum Hasan Abir



My name is Kaiyum Hasan Abir and I am currently studying at ‘Mirzapur Cadet College’ in Bangladesh. My passion is to become an altruist.

My yearning is to see young people leading , no matter where we are or what our background is! I got that type of mental strength from my educational institution, my family and my favorable atmospheres. Young people are the helmsmen of future generations.

What inspired you to enter the World NTD Day Story telling competition?

Life without awareness is not safe.one day we will have to depart for God’s acres; it’s natural. But in recent epochs we are noticing due to the outbreak of lethal diseases people are being suffered and many are also being died ; among them Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) are noteworthy to mention and awareness is needed to get rid of ourselves. From this, I got this inspiration to enter into World NTDs Day Storytelling Competitions so that I can share my words and voice to aware my surroundings.

Why does fighting NTDs matter to you?

Though these are NTDs, they are taking our precious lives forever and very often make our body organs paralyzed due to the fatal effect of these. We have felt the thorny effect of COVID-19 and we also can’t affirm that NTDs will not take the colossal shape like this and so it matters in my soul and got trembled! If we can embark on proper steps to prevent these diseases then I will be pacified and the whole world will be disease free!

How do you intend on continuing the fight against NTDs after this competition?

Promulgating through making posters, leaflets and attaching these to the walls can’t reach into our real goal entirely. Literally, I want to survive my fighting by expressing my words which will come forth from the depth of my mind and influence in people’s mind specially this scheme from underprivileged societies and nations.

What would be your request to your country’s leaders regarding fighting NTDs?

Can I not expect a disease free nation from my country leaders! Yes, I can! Indeed this solution can’t be possible by embarking only one country’s leaders. That’s why my request will be to my country leaders to take internally the best and mandatory steps into the country and spread these into the whole world to save our own souls and for better living.
