Ongoing Campaign: Zakat

Nourish Bangladesh is excited to present the Zakat Campaign. Our three implementing partners, Bidyanondo, B Desh Foundation, and Al-Zahoor Welfare Foundation, not only passed our rigorous vetting process but also offer a wide variety of important uses of your Zakat funds. It includes purchasing assets (e.g. livestock or sewing machines), providing business capital, and offering cash assistance to the economically disadvantaged. We are also able to direct your Zakat towards helping the Rohingya refugees. Our top priority remains making certain that your Zakat funds are used timely, cost-effectively, and conscientiously.

Ongoing Campaign: Rohingya Emergency

On Monday, March 22, 2021, a fire ripped through a Rohingya refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. Initial reports indicate the fire left 15 dead, as many as 400 people missing, hundreds injured, and over 50,000 people without homes. This comes on top of the ethnic cleansing that drove some 723,000 Rohingya Refugees to Bangladesh in August of 2017 and the recent military coup in Myanmar.

Covid-19 and a Hunger Crisis in Bangladesh

People in Bangladesh were looking ahead to a bright future for their country, on the heels of remarkable economic growth for over a decade. But they now find themselves in the midst of an unprecedented global crisis. Ramifications of the Covid-19 pandemic reach deep and were made only worse by Cyclone Amphan in May 2020 and then the devastating floods since July, putting Bangladesh on the brink of a severe humanitarian crisis. Many have lost their livelihoods during the lockdown, and significant parts of the population are at risk of possible starvation. They need our help, urgently.

 

Let's help them fight hunger

We are a diverse international group of volunteers fundraising for Bangladesh, to help them fight hunger as they deal with the Covid-19 pandemic, an event we truly hope remains as rare if not rarer than once in a hundred years.

In addition to raising awareness and collecting donations, we care deeply about making the most of a donor’s money. So we have convened a team of college students, a professor specializing in economic development, and individuals with ground experience volunteering in Bangladesh to research and thoroughly vet NGOs and grassroots volunteer groups on behalf of the donors.


Our two main priorities are vetting and fundraising


Real world change happening now


Meet the NGOs and volunteer groups


Small group. Big impact.

Making a difference with your donation

Our aim is to collect and distribute donations to those who are making the biggest difference in fighting hunger. We hope our commitment and expertise will allow donors to feel confident that every dollar they contribute through us will be used to its fullest. All members of our team are volunteering for free and we do not work for any of the NGOs or grassroots projects we are vetting.

We hope you will join us in our fight to thwart this humanitarian crisis and to help save lives from being lost to hunger.

A word from our donors

COVID-19 lures us into insular, isolationist thinking as we wonder how we can best protect ourselves and our families. Others’ needs feel more secondary, especially as those others feel further away than ever due to the suspension of most tourism and air travel, and as our hardships at home drown out concerns for hardships abroad. But we also know that those communities most at-risk and disadvantaged pre-virus, both domestically and abroad, are experiencing the impact of COVID-19 with disproportionate severity. The moral imperative to give, to reject that insularity, is stronger than ever. Not only do we know and trust the Bhuiyan family and Nourish Bangladesh, we also believe they’re uniquely positioned to direct funds to high-impact, grassroots efforts to mitigate hunger in Bangladesh. We’re excited to support them in their efforts to support Bangladeshis.
