Most of the cities of Bangladesh are in lock-down since last few weeks. This has put impoverished people of the informal sector into jeopardy and starvation. More than 10 million people are day laborers who live on daily income. These people are severely affected and at the mercy of the inadequate government stimulus and donations from the affluent. Responsible, Kind and Solvent people from all around the world are trying to help these poor to find some hope of survival during the COVID lock-down. Otherwise hunger may well kill them before COVID at all reach to them.
We, in our limited capacities, want to help 200 families with some food and cash to survive for one month. An amount BDT 2000 (Eqv of AUD 35 or USD 25 or GBP 20) can help a family of 3-4 people for 4 weeks. The estimate includes 20 kgs of rice, 10 kgs of lentil and some cash per family.
We have a team of young volunteers in Dhaka, Chittagong and Sylhet where we want to help at least 300 families altogether if not more.
Please come forward.
A six year old girl, Manha (Ayat Ashrafa) is suffering from blood cancer and being treated in Calcutta. Her father Mr. Dewan, who was also a beneficiary of JIBIKA, passed away on account of bone cancer two months back. She is a student of Play Group at Deen Kindergarten International. Her roll number is 12. Manha receives treatment in Calcutta every three months and requires 100,000 taka in each visit. Her mother, a bereaved widow, is helpless and finding it really difficult to continue her treatment. Nevertheless, Manha has no uncle, grandfather or siblings to look after her. However the good news is that doctors in Calcutta is optimistic that Manha can get 99% cured if she can continue the treatment for next 10 cycles which will cost her 10 lacs taka. JIBIKA urges to kind people especially young parents to come forward and help this mother to save/cure her child, who is her only means to live. To contribute any amount please consider either of the following
