A highly successful and enjoyable evening was held at the Misbah Tandoori (Bangladeshi Restaurant) in Monmouth on the 24th October 2010. A magnificent buffet consisting of many traditional Bangladeshi dishes was served to a gathering of 49 people and among the guests was the Mayor of Monmouth, Mrs. Jeana Hall. The evening was to raise funds to help Pakistan, where horrific floods in July 2010 affected millions.
Mr Miah, who has lived in Monmouth for 20 years, wanted to both raise money and bring people’s attention to the plight of the flood victims. The floods have now receded but millions of people lack the necessary essentials to survive after their homes have been destroyed by this catastrophic event.
On this occasion he felt that it was an opportunity to show the duty of humanitarianism to help the devastated people in Pakistan by raising £1800 but also giving those who attended a really fun evening with the usual excellent food and service.
The money (£1800) has already been sent to DEC, this is a lifesaving legacy which will help all the communities in the many affected areas in Pakistan. £1000 was raised by raffles which was really amazing, Shumon and Mohsin worked very hard to achieve this target and many thanks to those who donated and bought the raffle tickets and joined the buffet night to make it a success.
