President of 2019-20

Rtn M. Hasanuz Zaman, PHF



Today I fondly remember my father – a past President of the Rotary Club of Dhaka North whose dedication towards Rotary guided me to Rotary and his club. I am blessed to join a club which has such illustrious leaders. Thank you, my fellow club members, for inviting me into your club and begin this journey of service.

I am happy to welcome you to the 52nd Installation Ceremony of the Rotary Club of Dhaka North office bearer of RY 2019-2020. I am especially humbled that my club members have entrusted me with the task of leading the club as its President 2019-2020.

In keeping with our club’s glorious past and in consultation with our Immediate Past President Arch Syed Imtiaz Ahmed and President Elect Farah Shahrook Reza we have developed a strategic multiyear plan. We hope to only work on sustainable projects and develop projects over several years to make it successful.

Under this plan we hope to continue our clubs existing projects with Solamid Community School, Maer Achol Nutrition Program, Vocation Training for Drivers and Nursing Aide and support for Azimpur Maternity Centre. Without a doubt keep up our efforts to improve our signature project RC Dhaka North Eye Hospital at 60 Chand Mohammad Road, Kushtia.

PP Rotarian Enamuzzaman Chowdhury dreamed of ridding Bangladesh of scourge of Thalassemia and with the support PP Rtn Dr Syed Saleheen Qadri and club members started with  Thalassemia Awareness Campaign during his term in 2017-2018, IPP Rotarian Syed Imtiaz Ahmed stepped up and expanded this into Thalassemia Awareness and Carrier Detection Campaign covering Public and Private University students, Private and Public Companies employees and others. This year our efforts will be to expand and continue the program of Thalassemia Awareness and Carrier Screening and apply for Rotary Global Grant Funds for setting up Rotary Thalassemia Carrier Screening Laboratory at Kushtia. With this we can cover the whole of Bangladesh and expand our Awareness as well as Carrier Screening program. We hope you will join hands with us and rid Bangladesh of Thalassemia like Rotarian did with Polio.

This year we would also like to thank all our supporters over the years and specially recognize the support we have received from Embassy of Japan, First Security Islami Bank Ltd, Exim Bank Bangladesh Ltd, Rahimafrooz Bangladesh Ltd and UniMed Unihealth Phramaceuticals for our service projects over the years. We invite all Rotarian and Friends to join us in our service projects and to serve humanity.

Thank you for coming and we hope you will enjoy our program.
