Since early 2020, people worldwide have affected from COVID-19. It’s hard on everyone and harder on marginalized and rural community members who are already vulnerable because of their social status. We have been serving these rural community members since 2008 in 12 working districts. Amid spread of COVID-19 in the country from early on of 2020, we have also supported our rural community members with possible assistance as we could..

During first wave, we provided immediate food relief to the total of 2755 family members of Village Women’s Group who have been associated with us in all working districts.

And in second wave, we categorized three areas to provide relief related to COVID-19:

  • Food relief to the families directly impacted by the COVID
  • Nutritional Food Relief for post-COVID family members
  • Basic Health materials to the community based health posts/health institutions to prevent and fight the virus.

Food relief to the families directly impacted by the COVID

A total of 682 rural community members along with their family members benefitted from the relief under this category. We provided basic food such as Rice, Lentil, Cooking Oil, Salt, Sugar, Hand soaps and Masks to them.

Thankful to MSBKN and its officials for thinking of us at this time.
