Discussion on the Sundarban Day Observation  Speakers at the meeting of the Sundarbans Day said that Sundarbans protect the people living in the coastal areas of Bangladesh by keeping them from natural disasters like a mother. Sundarbans serve as one of the maintenances in the protection of Bangladesh. Sundarbans are our national resources. It is now a world heritage. Bangladesh can be identified separately at the base of the world. Sundarbans have kept the southwestern part of the country from natural disasters. Most of the mother's lap is as safe as a baby sleeps in absolute relaxation, a large area in the southwest is safe to resort to the Sundarbans.

No one but the victim can tell how much pain a person with acid burns goes through for the rest of their life. A person throws acid on another person only when there is an extreme lack of morals among people. We don't want another acid attack to happen anywhere in the country including Satkhira.

They are trying to increase their capacity. However, these activities will be possible only then. If they can be more socially supported. The speakers said these things at the Annual General Meeting

Members of the disabled community are being victimized. Due to natural calamities caused by climate change, the people of coastal areas are being displaced as climate refugees and their human rights are being violated. Child marriage has spread in Bangladesh due to the epidemic of coronavirus. The child marriage rate in Satkhira is currently 77.07 percent. The government is trying to get justice for the poor. Legal Aid Officers have been appointed at the
