Al-Abir quickly understood that children would face difficulties with online classes during the COVID-19 pandemic. Indeed, many poor students couldn’t have access to internet to attend the online classes, so he contacted the school authority in order to help them. He tried to make the distress experienced by children a little bit more comfortable by giving them access to internet and books. Al-Abir also gave masks and hand-sanitizers to shopkeepers, rickshaw-pullers and poor people. He also raised awareness among them. Moreover, with the help of an organisation, he collected money and used it to provide food to 200 poverty-stricken families. Finally, Al-Abir created a library named “Manobotar Library”, which delivers books free for poor children who love to read but cannot because they don’t have the capability to buy them.
