Ongoing Campaign: Zakat

Nourish Bangladesh is excited to present the Zakat Campaign. Our three implementing partners, Bidyanondo, B Desh Foundation, and Al-Zahoor Welfare Foundation, not only passed our rigorous vetting process but also offers a wide variety of important uses of your Zakat funds. It includes purchasing assets (e.g. cows or sewing machine), providing business capital, and offering cash assistance to the economically disadvantaged. We are able to direct your Zakat towards helping the Rohingya refugees. Our top priority remains making certain that your Zakat funds are used timely, cost-effectively, and conscientiously.

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 a decade of remarkable economic growth. 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.

 

Ongoing Campaign: Rohingya Emergency

On Monday, March 22, 2021, a fire ripped through a Rohingya refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. Initial reports indicate the fire left 15 dead, as many as 400 people missing, hundreds injured, and over 50,000 people without homes. This comes on top of the ethnic cleansing that drove some 723,000 Rohingya Refugees to Bangladesh in August of 2017 and the recent military coup in Myanmar.

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, 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

A word from our donors

While all of us have been impacted by COVID-19 to varying degrees, the worst collective burdens of the crisis fall on communities that lack the resources to dampen its most severe health and economic consequences. In the face of brewing humanitarian crisis in Bangladesh, we should do and give what we can to ensure people have access to a fundamental necessity of life: nourishment. I thank Nourish Bangladesh for providing a platform to do so! It is natural to wonder whether funds we donate with the best intentions actually serve to help the people and communities who need the help. I know that Professor Bhuiyan has the contextual knowledge to both understand the severity of the crisis in Bangladesh, and to direct our donations to organizations that will be most effective. I have my full faith in him and the Nourish Bangladesh team. I urge you to contribute what you can to the effort.
