Thus, when January and February, which are the coldest months of Bangladesh arrive, they have no protection from the relentless cold. With night-time temperatures falling as low as 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10°C) and no proper shelter, warm clothes or fuel for heating, these helpless refugee families can only hope for us to help. We have been making an effort to assist with their urgent need of clothes and blankets to keep themselves and their families warm which is only possible due to your generosity.
In collaboration with BASMAH FOUNDATION we have distributed more than 10000 blankets to Rohingya refugees and Bangladeshi Locals in the winter of 2019-2020.
And this year, 2019-2020, The warm cloths like blanket, sweater, Chuddar/sheet distribution effort is still running in Rohingya refugee camps and local rural areas in Bangladesh where people suffer a lot in winter. More than 20,000 families were benefitted this year from this project.
