Winter Blanket Drive

Funds raised from the Winter Blanket Drive (WBD) will be used to provide blankets to poor families, particularly in North Bengal (e.g., Dinajpur, Rangpur) as they face significant hardship in dealing with the cold winter. Our implementing partners include Nourish Bangladesh vetted non-profit organizations and grassroot volunteers all across Bangladesh.

Food & Cash Transfer

Donations here are used for food distribution and cash tranfers to a diverse group of economically disadvantaged Bangladeshi residents as they face covid19, floods, cyclones, and the Rohingya refugee crisis. Your donations are distributed among a dozen rigorously vetted implementers including non-profits (e.g. JAAGO, BDesh, Bidyanondo)

Covid-19 and a Hunger Crisis in Bangladesh

People in Bangladesh were looking ahead to a bright future for their country, on the heels of remarkable economic growth for over a decade. But they now find themselves in the midst of an unprecedented global crisis. Ramifications of the Covid-19 pandemic reach deep and were made only worse by Cyclone Amphan in May 2020 and then the devastating floods since July, putting Bangladesh on the brink of a severe humanitarian crisis. Many have lost their livelihoods during the lockdown, and significant parts of the population are at risk of possible starvation. They need our help, urgently.

 

Let's help them fight hunger

We are a diverse international group of volunteers fundraising for Bangladesh, to help them fight hunger as they deal with the Covid-19 pandemic, an event we truly hope remains as rare if not rarer than once in a hundred years.

In addition to raising awareness and collecting donations, we care deeply about making the most of a donor’s money. So we have convened a team of students, academics, a professor specializing in economic development, experienced charity fundraisers and individuals with ground experience volunteering in Bangladesh to research and thoroughly vet NGOs and grassroots volunteer groups on behalf of the donors.


Our two main priorities are vetting and fundraising


Real world change happening now


Meet the NGOs and volunteer groups


Small group. Big impact.

Making a difference with your donation

Our aim is to collect and distribute donations to those who are making the biggest difference in fighting hunger. We hope our commitment and expertise will allow donors to feel confident that every dollar they contribute through us will be used to its fullest. All members of our team are volunteering for free and we do not work for any of the NGOs or grassroots projects we are vetting.

We hope you will join us in our fight to thwart this humanitarian crisis and to help save lives from being lost to hunger.

A word from our donors

I have known Professor Faress Bhuiyan for a decade and during that time have witnessed his ability to deftly navigate Bangladeshi and US American contextual realities in his work and personal life, be it through taking US American students to BD on educational programs, conducting research in economic development, caring for his parents who have crossed these borders many times. He and his team are extremely well-positioned to understand the ground conditions in BD and to communicate the urgency of the needs to those of us in a position to help out. There are so many needs in our world, especially now, but the need for physical nourishment is basic and universal. If you can, I encourage you to give generously to this effort.
