The rural areas of Bangladesh are affected very much by weather changes and they are very vulnerable to natural calamities like floods. Without protection and strong foundations destruction ravages the homes and stores or the locality. Many goods and supplies and raw products like crops are lost in addition to all the casualties. These factors leave people feeble and in need of our help.
A report from the Daily Dhaka Tribune as recent as 27 July, 2019 stated that 28 districts have been flooded in the month of July alone. To provide a helping hand to these people in need, we provided emergency flood relief to the victims of Gaibandha district in North Bengal for 5 days straight. Including necessities like healthy food and clean water Basmah Foundation team has distributed provisions to countless families and made a huge difference in these five days. However, this is not the end.
More than 500 acres of harvest have been washed away by the rampant waters stripping local farmers of all their hope and hard work. These hopeless farmers are the exact people that need our empowerment. These are the people we must invest in to move forward in our mission of creating self-dependent communities. Together with BASMAH USA we have embarked on a project that will distribute nut seeds and provide necessary cultivation aid to more than 600 farmers affected in Shushua char, Bhuapur, Tangail district in Bangladesh. This is a major step towards our dream. By helping the farmers get back on their feet we can produce long term harvest opportunities which will greatly benefit the area as a whole. To do this, we need your assistance. Your generosity can make it possible for us to bring back happiness and fulfillment in the lives of these flood affected people.
