The Principal
Oxford College

Subject: Prayer for permission to open a relief camp for the flood-affected people.

Dear Sir,
With due respect, we are placing a humble request regarding the current flood situation. We all know that the recent floods have caused a great damage to the people and wealth of this locality. Most of the people have become homeless, and they have taken shelter on river embankments and roadside spaces. Their miseries know no bounds. We are trying our best to collect food and clothes from the people of safe areas. The chairman of our Union Parishad has been giving support. However, we need a safe place to accommodate as many families as possible.

Under the circumstances stated above, we pray and hope that you would permit us to open a relief camp in our campus.

Yours sincerely —
Alindo Hasan
On behalf of the students of Oxford College
