The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on people all over the world. In Bangladesh, more than a million people have arrived from abroad that were living in different countries where the epidemic has transgressed the boundaries. Bangladesh also has a poverty rate among 30% of its population, leaving many without the equipment that they need to survive the pandemic. From laborers and doctors, the country greatly lacks the needed PPE and hygiene materials that anyone would need for such a vicious virus.
Life for Relief and Development partnered up with the Al-Khair Foundation (AKF), to not only provide materials to citizens and doctors of the Dhaka District of Bangladesh, but to also educate them on the importance of wearing face masks, consistently washing their hands and social distancing from one another. The project delivered gloves and masks to those in need, as well as PPE to doctors, who before the distribution, feared for their own lives and those around them while treating patients. With Bangladesh on lockdown, like many other countries, Life and AKF were sure to follow procedures in regard to social distancing and wearing the proper equipment to ensure their safety and health, as well as the safety and health of those around them.
Life would like to thank its donors for their support in making this project happen!
