Poor families across Bangladesh are being hit hard by the COVID-19 crisis, as many parents are losing their jobs. The pandemic continues to spread in a country where even washing hands to avoid contamination is a luxury and food is already scarce. Only 15% of Bangladeshi workers earn more than $6 a day. The economic shutdown sparked by COVID-19 threatens millions of livelihoods in the country imminently. But there are reasons for optimism, too. On March 26th, when the government called for a country-wide lockdown, 10 million rickshaw drivers, day laborers, factory workers, maids, and others raced to get home. The resilience of this country is seen in the eerily empty and quiet Dhaka streets, never before seen. To help the underprivileged communities, Women in Digital, a tech social venture, has been providing food since the country went into isolation through their initiative ‘Food for All’. They have served 1347 families up until now. Most have been provided with 1 month's worth of food. As conditions get worse in Bangladesh and the spread of COVID-19, we urge you to donate in order and save thousands of innocent lives. Proceeds will go to select underprivileged families in the rural areas of Bangladesh. Through this GoFundMe, we would like to help families in need by providing emergency food parcels. Funds will be used immediately to buy and distribute food. We appreciate any and all donations. $6 can feed a family for a week. May we come together to help those who need it the most.
