It has been only nine months since a small group of volunteers with a special place in their heart for Bangladesh got together. They wanted to help Bangladesh deal with the pandemic, the aftermath of cyclone Amphan, and the destruction left behind by one of the worst cases of flooding in decades. The need was urgent. Today, we are a registered charity, fundraising for 14 rigorously vetted NGOs and grassroot volunteer groups. So far we have funded approximately half a million meals through dry food and cash transfers to 25,000 individuals in 24 districts of Bangladesh.
We are so grateful to receive a donation from the Rotary Club of Northfield! Thanks to their generous support we are able to provide food to hundreds of families in the areas of Bangladesh that we support. Read more on our impact page to see just how far your generous support will go.
On the heels of a decade of robust economic growth, an unprecedented expansion of the textile industry, and the proliferation of microfinance institutions, Bangladesh is transitioning from a low-income to a lower-middle-income country (according to World Bank Classification).
