Relief Coordination during the COVID 19 Pandemic
Shuchona Foundation coordinated with donors and the Neuro-Developmental Disabilities Protection Trust (NDDPT) to facilitate the distribution of daily essentials to disadvantaged families of persons with disabilities in different parts of the country, soon after the Government of Bangladesh gave the stay-at-home order in March 2020.
Although, Shuchona Foundation is not a direct-service organization, but we helped facilitate this initiative because this was a humanitarian need at a time when we were all facing uncertain times. Shuchona Foundation was the bridge between the NDDPT who have access to the organizations to obtain information on families in need, and donors who have the resources to organize the relief including procurement and distribution. Shuchona Foundation donated all the proceeds to date from the sale of Unique Glimpses, a picture book edited by our Chairperson Ms. Saima Wazed in 2017, to this cause. In phases, a total of number of 11,100+ packets have been distributed in several districts, received by almost 4100 families, with an additional 1600+ families receiving Eid gifts.
