Funds raised from the Winter Blanket Drive (WBD) will be used to provide blankets to poor families, particularly in North Bengal (e.g., Dinajpur, Rangpur) as they face significant hardship in dealing with the cold winter. Our implementing partners include Nourish Bangladesh vetted non-profit organizations and grassroot volunteers all across Bangladesh.
Donations here are used for food distribution and cash tranfers to a diverse group of economically disadvantaged Bangladeshi residents as they face covid19, floods, cyclones, and the Rohingya refugee crisis. Your donations are distributed among a dozen rigorously vetted implementers including non-profits (e.g. JAAGO, BDesh, Bidyanondo)
Bangladeshis were looking ahead to a bright future for their country, on the heels of a decade of remarkable economic growth. But they now find themselves in the midst of an unprecedented global crisis. Ramifications of the Covid-19 pandemic reach deep, and it has put Bangladesh on the brink of a severe humanitarian crisis. Many have lost their livelihood, and significant parts of the population are at risk of possible starvation. They need our help, urgently.
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 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.
Nourish Bangladesh provides a great opportunity for people living aboard and in Bangladesh to help those who are in need. I like how they give you the option to donate to registered and non registered ngos. So definitely go and check out the work they did so far and please donate as the covid situation's still really bad in Bangladesh. They need your help!
