Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB) has provided relief materials in various parts of slum areas in Dhaka in collaboration with Sajida Foundation.
According to a press release, the university distributed relief materials as thousands of underprivileged people are going through a huge crisis of food and essential family needs amid devastating COVID-19 pandemic.
The university distributed foods and other essential commodities to 2,500 families in Uttara, Vatara, Badda, Satarkul and other slums of the capital city on Thursday and Friday.
Each family received 8 kilograms of rice, edible oil, potatoes, daal, onion, chola, sugar, semai, salt, molasses and some other necessary family goods.
IUB’s Vice Chancellor (Acting) Prof. Milan Pagon took part in the relief distribution programme for the most disadvantaged people.
He was accompanied by senior officials of the university. Sajida Foundation’s Director (Support) Monirul Islam Khan and Divisional Manager Rabiul Karim, among others, were also present at that time.
Sajida Foundation volunteers also demonstrated the local people on health and hygiene issues, particularly washing hands and wearing masks on a regular basis.
