General Fund: Food & Cash Transfer

The General Fund is 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) and grassroots volunteers. 

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 offer a wide variety of important uses of your Zakat funds. It includes purchasing assets (e.g. livestock or sewing machines), providing business capital, and offering cash assistance to the economically disadvantaged. We are also 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.

 

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

If there is one time that physicians are called upon to step up, it is during a public health and science crisis. However when it comes to pandemicis we know that individuals working alone is not sufficient. A public health crisis needs to involve the whole public working in concert to minimize suffering and deliver care to the greatest number. While medicine and vaccines are important, the first thing people need is food and shelter, followed by adequate sanitation. Clean water, public sanitation, sewers, has historically saved more lives then anything else. So donate to first fed and shelter those in need then support public health efforts along with education about these important issues. It will not only help those in Bangladesh, it also will make you healthier and happier. Doing good is good for your health. So be selfish and donate.
