Hope and pray that you, your family and the loved ones are safe and doing well during this difficult time.
Summary of activities in Bangladesh
During this challenging time, your donation means more than ever in Bangladesh.
Ankur has contributed in the BUET OXYJET CPAP research, a low cost alternative of High flow O2 system. Now we are funding to make 50 devices for various hospitals in Bangladesh. With more support we can make more devices.

We continued food drives to cover slum areas of Dhaka, remote areas in - Rangpur, Dinajpur, Khulna, Hatier Chor, Sylhet, Comilla, Barishal, Jalokhathi, Bogra and many other districts. We plan to cover many other remote areas.
We partnered with local farmers and purchased their product such as, Vegetables, to give them the price they deserve. We distributed so far ~2500 families in various part of Bangladesh.

Our food bag approximately contains - Rice 15 kg (44 x 15= 660 BDT), Flour 5 kg (25 x 5 = 125 BDT), Potatoes 5 kg (21 x 5 = 105 BDT), Cooking Oil 1L (95 BDT), Chola 3 kg (3x 70 = 210 BDT), Salt 1kg (15 BDT), Total 1210 BDT. We calculated, with 1250 BDT (~15$) you can support a 5 members family for 3 weeks. With Intel matching you can even double your contribution. Would you like to support families who does not have food during this time? If you donate, please send us your receipt of Intel Benevity so we can keep track of raised fund.
We have now started providing O2 and other medical support to the patients across Bangladesh. Our coordination team in Bangladesh has been supporting us at various parts of Bangladesh.
