He is also recognized as a goodwill messenger by the State Council. Some people have taken to calling him a Foreign “Lei Feng”, a high praise because Lei Feng was the role model for several generations of Chinese people.
He is Mostak Ahamed Galib, a student of Wuhan University of Technology in the city of Wuhan, Hubei province, who is clearly the most famous foreign student in the area.
Galib comes from Bangladesh, on the other side of Yarlung Zangbo River.
“I dreamed of coming to China just to have a look when I was a child,” Galib says and he chose China for study though a university in another country promises to give him scholarship. In his years of study, Galib keeps helping people in need. Once a friend took him to visit the Wuhan Xiehe Hospital he decided to do voluntary work there and ended up teaching English to children suffered from leukemia for 7 years.
In explaining his motives, he says, “At the beginning of my studies I wanted to do something else after class but gradually realized that I could not tear myself away from these children who influenced me a lot.”
Sometimes he would buy them toys and dolls to cheer them up and sometimes he would think of ways to encourage them and give them faith.
“Children there like me a lot and we have established a close friendship,” he adds.
When Galib discovered that the family of one of his “little friends”, Jiao, couldnt afford to pay for the treatment, he looked for ways to help, such as contacting the media and setting up a fund to collect donations for the boy. Unfortunately, his young friend eventually died from the illness.
In addition to the voluntary work in the hospital, Galib also takes part in other volunteer activities such as teaching at a middle school in Jiangxi province and teaching children regulations for daily life.Galib teaches children English in a village school in Hubei province.

The two nations have rich cultural and social exchanges, but the economic exchanges are not enough, he says.
So he chose company management for his major as a way to help increase economic exchanges and cooperation between the two and, fortunately, Chinas Belt and Road Initiative creates more cooperation opportunities for the two countries.
And, now Galib does have his own consulting business to join the two and, his skill with six languages – Bengali, Chinese, Hindi, Pakistani, English and Arabic – can help him a lot in his work.
His work has helped the realization of transnational projects of more than 10 billion yuan ($1.56 billion).
2015 marks Galibs 13th year in China and hes accustomed to life here. “Ill never stop being helpful between Bangladesh and China, and my love for China will never end no matter where I am.” He says when asked about his plan of life.8.03KPhotoNight views of Harbin through the lensTibetans take train home after pilgrimage or travellingWorlds largest shaftless Ferris wheel built in ChinaAncient cities to be connected by Xian-Chengdu high-speed railwaySnow turns Harbin into winter wonderlandReed Catkin Festival held in WuhanSocietyPoliticsHot TopicsScience/TechBusinessCover StoryFTZ simplifies process to launch businessesJapan can offer experience, expat saysApplication for work streamlinedAwareness of law aids resolutionAir Force units explore new airspaceLow wages and lack of respect responsible for kindergarten abuse, experts sayLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchAgency ensuring natural gas supplyUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingChina moves to secure natural gas supply amid rising winter demandXi asks China, Canada to work for substantial tiesCooperation necessary for success, leaders sayLiving in space: How astronauts train, eat and workTeachers excused for lunchtime drinksWaiting for Shenzhou XICancer agent found in 44 cities drinking waterAt Ikea eatery, its no pay, no stayChina lose 2-0 to Uzbekistan in World Cup qualifier, coach Gao resignsC919 gains another 55 orders, lifting total orders to 785Services offset dip in manufacturingFintech to energize real economy, cut risksChinas Long March rockets complete 60 commercial launchesEngineers achieve breakthroughChina-made components add securityOnline shopping rings up customer complaintsImport expo to focus on advanced techSME mobile market platform receives first clientsChina top importer of US soybeansAir China opens direct route from Beijing to BarcelonaInsurance-based trust launchedDandelion helping to sow the seeds of stability for membersCover storyVisa change may boost tourism to USThe wrong side of the roadBuilding ban begins to biteVillagers call on Japan to atone for massacreMost ViewedTodays Top NewsStem cell donor offers ray of hope for US boy with leukemiaOvertime becomes norm for white-collar employeesMinistry denies troops sent to reinforce DPRK borderXinjiang religious extremists arrested for people smuggling to join jihadProsecutors name 11 officials in probe of Tianjin blastsAll residential buildings damaged in Tianjin blasts are safe, inspectors say3-D printing used to help boy standBeijing tops domestic list for traffic congestionDoctors use 3-D print technology to save baby with heart diseaseNational and ethnic unity vital for region, Xi saysIn todays trending, a rocket part crashes into a Shaanxi home, nursing home has fake windows, 3D murals in colorful Chinese village, and “gold rush” turns out to be for sulfur fertilizer.HighlightsUnnecessary C-sections come under scrutiny in Anhui provinceMarathons set for race to the topMilitary uniforms to march with timesBeijing police publishes cartoon images of residents who tip off policeHot TopicsGround level Rule of law Panda China youths Anti-terror drive Family planning Smog Fox Hunt Beijing integrates with Tianjin, Hebei China cracks down on graftSpecial50th anniversary of Tibet autonomous regionTianjin explosions: Deaths, destruction and bravery…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
