Our beloved mother, Monsura “Mukti” Mohiuddin was the eldest daughter of Sabera Rahman & the father of the Bangladeshi Independence Movement, Mashiur “Jadu Miah” Rahman. Her name Mukti means liberation in Bengali. She was a former Member of Parliament who served & fought for poor people both as a historically elected official & as a citizen.
To continue her legacy of service towards liberation & love, we are establishing the Mukti Foundation , in our mother’s honour, an international institution to serve poor people living in abject poverty.
$7400 for 74 years
The Mukti Foundation’s first endeavor will be to crowdsource at least $7400.00 to immediately feed poor Bangladeshi families here in New York and then establish a food pantry in the Dimla district in Bangladesh where Mrs. Mohiuddin, as a young child, fed poor families every week with her paternal grandmother.
Liberation From Poverty
Mrs. Mohiuddin lived by a steadfast belief that food, clothing, & education are the pathways out of poverty. To continue the work she began as a young child, the Mukti Foundation will support the existing Mukti School in the Dimla District in Bangladesh and work to establish a food and clothing pantry for families living in abject poverty.
A Revolutionary Lineage
The Mukti Foundation is a family foundation dedicated to continuing the legacy of our revolutionary lineage that began with our great grandmother, was continued by our grandparents and our beloved mother, Mukti Mohiuddin. We have been taught to serve those who are at the intersections of the most marginalized and oppressed and living in abject poverty.
