A 15-20 volunteer team named Al-Markazul (a religious and social welfare organization) has been conducting dignified funerals and burials of the COVID-19 victims in Dhaka, Bangladesh. All these volunteers are Muslim scholars or teachers from Madrasa. They have been keeping themselves separated from their families, living at a place near the designated graveyard and risking their lives out of humanity since May 29, 2020. This body of work is an insight of these volunteers’ daily life.
