N.J. Thakuria, Guwahati, 24 August 2020: Nearly two hundred media employees including scribes based in the city today received a relief package from the representatives of the JF Foundation which were donated by Vientiane (Lao PDR) based Assamese entrepreneurs Habib Mohammed Chowdhury and his brother Soukthavy Chowdhury (Sadik).
The selected beneficiaries arrived at Chandmari locality of the city following the health protocols and took the package maintaining social
distance. They unanimously appreciated the donors for the support extended to them during the Covid-19 pandemic that has virtually
ruined the media industry across Assam.

Moreover, around 25,000 families who faced the annual Assam flood furies were also offered food items by the foundation.
