Singer Habib Wahid Shares his Anti-Poverty Anthem with Bangladeshis in the Sujat Nagar slum in Dhaka

October 26, 2016

Habib Wahid’s song Ei Bangla Ei Manush was this year’s anthem for #EndPoverty Day in Bangladesh. We’re grateful Habib accompanied our crew to visit students and people living in the Sujat Nagar slum in Dhaka. His lyrics celebrate the resilience of hard working Bangladeshis who, “with hearts full of courage and strength,” can rise every time they fall. #ItsPossible to #EndPoverty and #ProsperBangladesh
