A total of 2,000 households have also received food packages and the remaining 1,000 households are low-income families from Dhaka slum communities.
Each food package is designed to provide sustenance for a family for 15 days, containing rice, pulses, cooking oil, milk, and other essentials.
Naser Ezaz Bijoy, Chief Executive Officer, Standard Chartered Bangladesh, said, “It is a blessing to play a role in alleviating and reducing the hardships faced by those who are struggling to put food on the table. Providing underprivileged residents with food packages, in a difficult time, is our way of saying that we care about the community where we work. Additionally, workers and their families were heavily impacted by the Bangabazar fire. The Bank is honoured to provide support to those in need in the aftermath of this tragic event.”
