We humble Appeal to  everyone
Stand by the side of blind brothers and sisters in these difficult times.
At a time when people from all over the world are suffering from the epidemic of compassion, the situation of the economically backward people of the society due to natural causes is even more deplorable. People with disabilities in the society usually come from economically backward families. At a time when people are struggling to survive because of economic hardship on the one hand and obstacles on the other, this global epidemic is pushing all these people further back. The most affected in this situation are the visually impaired talented children. Other people in the society are not able to stand by them due to the same economic hardship as well as social distance. So the Cricket Association for the Blind of Bengal has decided that all the blind cricketers in the heart of Bengal who used to play cricket in the past or are playing cricket now, will stand by those who have been severely affected by this global epidemic. We have decided to initially help 200 (1 person from each family i.e. 200 families) blind cricketers. The aid list will include some money for daily food and medicine and other expenses.

The Cricket Association for the Blind of Bengal, with limited powers, has so far, with the help of all of you, been helping the talented blind cricketers of Bengal to showcase their talents in the world arena. This is a time when the whole world is standing by each other's aid and showing a great humanity. We call on people from all walks of life to stand by the blind and talented cricketers of the society.
