Desk Report: The Covid-19 pandemic has not only brought untold sufferings to people across the globe but also kindled kindness and cooperation to deal with the unprecedented crisis, said BGMEA President Faruque Hassan. “Mountainous crisis can be dealt with when there is unity and cooperation and this is evident in the way the world has handled the pandemic,” he said.
He came up with remark while distributing blankets among poor people at Boroshoshi in Panchagarh on December 26. He also visited Bodeshari Temple and handed over a cheque of Taka 2 lac to the temple as donation. He said, “We have seen that the rapid surge in infections led to hospitalization of a large number of people, making it difficult for hospital authorities to cope with the enormous pressure of patients with limited supply of medical equipment and medicines.
Besides, many poor people were severely affected due to the pandemic. People from their respective positions extended their cooperation to face the challenging situation.” Out of social responsibility BGMEA has also come forward from the outset of the crisis to support people who are in need during the Covid pandemic. BGMEA donated PPE including masks and medical equipment for the font liners, he said. BGMEA also donated Taka 6 crore to the Prime Minister’s fund to help the poor affected by Covid fallout.
