Project Bangladesh: Covid19 Crisis Response

Covid-19 is ravaging countries around the world. With  3.5MM infected people confirmed and almost 250,000 dead, the virus is only now beginning to abate in some countries.

In Bangladesh, where the number of confirmed cases is ballooning, more than 20% of the population live below the poverty income of $1.90 per day, and much of that population is in crisis because of measures taken to stop the spread of the virus. These people have lost their jobs and in turn, are facing starvation.

One man, Wahid Hossain, has a plan. and I am working with him to raise $11,800 in order to feed 500 families that need your help now. In return, his startup clothing company will also make 5000 masks, 5000 units of hand sanitizer, and 1000 protective face shields that he will donate to medical caregivers on the front lines, fighting the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes Covid-19.

Please give today...any amount helps, and the lives of 500 families depend on you! Wahid and I are grateful for your donations, and so many mothers, fathers and children will be grateful for the lives you save!
