Who Am I?
Md. Faruque Ahmed is the real struggling character of migrant workers. He faced the worst migrant lifespan at Saudi Arabia in his migration period from 1986 to 1996. The wrong treatment by an Indian origin general physician at KKMC, KSA directed him to damage his right kidney as well as suffered him a lot. He rushed from Bangladesh High Commission to Riyadh Governor’s office, from Defense ministry to Health ministry to receive fair justice and treatment. But, unfortunately returned Bangladesh with bare hand and struggle for three years. Mr. Faruque also rushed to different NGOs and Rights based national-international organizations for the compensations and fair justice after returning to Bangladesh in 1996. That time he realized that, there is no one for the help of the migrants.
