Relief in Bangladesh

(Last Updated On: June 25, 2020)

During this Covid-19 pandemic, our partners have been busy providing food and monetary relief, with your support. Our partner BCSS in Bangladesh has also been delivering food relief across our projects to children who remain living at school and also to those who have gone home to their families.

Last year, you helped us provide a Seventh-Day Adventist school and their community in Bangladesh with a well, and running fresh water as part of our WHED project. As a result, the community has had access to fresh drinking water during this lockdown period. This has also meant irrigation so they can water their vegetables for additional nutrition and food support.

We have been working with BCSS, with your support, and have recently provided additional food support to families, teachers and boarders. 30 families received a one-off food package which included 20kg of rice, 2kg of pulse, 5kg of potatoes, 1L of oil and 1kg of salt.

61 students who are still boarding at the school have been given a 60 day food package which includes 1000kg of rice, 50kg of pulse, 100kg of potatoes, 30L of oil, 50kg of salt along with vegetables and other nutritious foods.

Finally, 25 staff families received a food package that included 30kg of rice, 3kg of pulse, 5kg of potatoes, 2L of oil and 2kg of salt.

We are thankful for your ongoing support as we continue to provide relief to students and families across Bangladesh, Nepal and India. If you would like to donate this project, please click the link below.
