COVID Pre-Eid Food Campaign in Bangladesh

COVID Pre Eid Food Distributions

Today, 23rd May 2020, Shapla Foundation has successfully distributed 7 days' equivalent of food to 80 needy families in Notun Khane Bari area (located in Shorshodi union of Feni District, Bangladesh) to help them celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr. This was done as part of our ongoing campaign "Help Feed the Hungry" which is for helping 600 needy & affected families in The COVID-19 situation.

The country has been under lockdown since March to prevent COVID-19 spread and it has been made stricter during Eid vacations. Under such circumstances many poverty-stricken people will not be able to survive.

That is why with the help of our Feni volunteers we have distributed relief boxes containing basic food items to the neediest.

Each relief box contained:
  • Rice 7 kg
  • Lentils 1 kg
  • Onion 2 kg
  • Potato 2 kg
  • Oil 1 LTR
  • Sugar 1 kg
  • Soap 1 pc
  • Vermicelli 2 packet
  • Danish milk 1 pcs

The whole task was completed taking all necessary health and safety precautions (mask, gloves, soap, hand sanitizer, etc).

We would like to thank all our volunteers who have worked really hard while packing and distributing the food and our program coordinator Mohammad Khalilullah for his effort in making this campaign successful. And special thanks to everyone who has donated or contributed to the cause.
