We earnestly thank and appreciate all the IUBians (Students of Independent University, Bangladesh) who have clearly demonstrated the mightiness of their hearts. Also, we thank all our teachers who have supported us with the needed logistics and by donating clothes as well.

Lastly, we thank all UNYSABians from other universities for their continual encouragements. We hope to come up with more big events shortly. Whoever is reading this piece, please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
