Helping Underprivileged People
There always comes a moment when you need to stop for a while and meditate on what you may give and share. The world is a beautiful place, but, unfortunately, it is poisoned with poverty, diseases, social injustice, greediness, natural, and environmental disasters. FBS has always been concerned about people in need. We put our best efforts into making an impact on the world and give you a chance to help while trading for a cause.
There are many more out there, and contributions can never be enough.
Ramadan – the Month of Charity
The holy month of Ramadan in FBS is a chance to trade for a good reason. During this period, once a year, FBS donates the spread and commission collected from profitable trades to charitable organizations around the world. The Ramadan charity is our way of celebrating goodness, compassion, and goodwill.
We help orphans, families in need, widows, senior citizens, people who need medical rehabilitation, and many other groups of people who seek compassion, understanding, and help.
FBS traders have a unique opportunity to improve someone’s life daily by doing their thing!
The pace of the modern world and constant desire to consume more than we need to make us forget about people who have no access to proper education, sufficient food or houses suitable for a healthy life.
Kids from a small village of Mae Chaem in Thailand taught us what hard work, optimism, determination, and courage is. Their path to knowledge is dangerous and extremely difficult. To get to school, they have to pass shaky old bridges, step on sloppy stones, and slip on the muddy roads. Besides, the weather in the mountains is changing from hot to chilly. Kids have no warm clothes and are always tired after daily long walks.
FBS decided to reward them for persistence and a great example. We presented the kids with the uniform that is both warm and durable enough to sustain a long walk through dense forests. We also brought educational materials and food for school meals.
Unpredictable events that enter people’s lives can change the routine course of events for good in just one day! Disasters wreck homes, families, and hopes. It was the case of Laos flood and Lombok earthquakes that left us heartbroken.
FBS responded quickly and accurately. We sent humanitarian aid trucks and let FBS team members distribute life supplies and medicines among locals. Residents of remote areas got starter kits that can keep them afloat during the first most tragic weeks.
Now that the year is coming to an end, take a moment and think of endless chances you can use to help those in need. Actions speak better than words – even small charity means doing great things!
