Cheshire, CT (May 17, 2010): Distressed Children and Infants (DCI) International Program Director, Dr. Sabina Ahmed, attended Bangladeshi Community Baishakhee Mela, in Detroit on 05/15/10, Michigan, organized by Bangladeshi Community of Michigan. She delivered a message to the audience about DCI’s mission and invited the Bangladeshi community members to support DCI’s activities and help changing the lives of underprivileged children in Bangladesh.

Many of our sponsors, donors and friends attended the Baishakhee Mela, and came to listen to Dr. Sabina Ahmed’s talk which focused on how DCI is changing the lives of underprivileged children in Bangladesh. Her short presentation illustrated briefly the life-long benefits U.S. children are gaining by volunteering for DCI. DCI’s volunteer programs are also connecting the young generation of expatriate families to their roots in Bangladesh. In addition, DCI had an information booth at this event.
