To help the underprivileged, JAAGO Foundation had started providing food and necessity packages since the lockdown was imposed. With your help, we have already distributed thousands of packages among the worst affected people in different parts of the country. Our volunteers in every district are trying their best to reach out to these people and provide them the necessities. We plan to continue it throughout this emergency period.
Starting in the last week of March 2020, we distributed food packages in Banani & Rayer Bazar among the daily wage earners.
In April, we continued distributing food packages in our schools in Rayer Bazar & Banani. Though this relief campaign was initiated in Dhaka, now we have conducted this program in most of the districts of the country. Our volunteers from Chattogram, Rajshahi, Rangpur, Habiganj and many more districts worked tirelessly to reach the underprivileged people of society to provide them with food packages. Also, during this coronavirus pandemic, many lower-middle-class families around us have lost jobs & are struggling to put food on the table.
We have tried our best to help them & delivered food to their doorsteps.
Every year JAAGO Foundation collects Zakat from people and uses them for the education of disadvantaged children. But this year JAAGO is delivering food packages with people’s Zakat to the needy people of society. Hence, we have started collecting Zakat this month for the Corona Zakat Relief Fund.
In May, we are continuing with relief distribution in many districts including Chattogram, Rajshahi, Rangpur, Habiganj, Madaripur, Laxmipur, Gopalganj and many more. This month, we plan to reach more districts. Our volunteers are also distributing food on their own.
