With your generous donation, once again we are able to complete a timely distribution of blankets to the cold-stricken disadvantaged people in Bangladesh. This year we are able to distribute 1900 new blankets to people living in the Northern side of Bangladesh (Rajshahi, Natore, Bogra, Joypur, Rangpur, Dinajpur, Ponchogor, Thakurgaon, Kurigram, Nilphamari and Lalmonirhat). SpaandanB Bangladesh officials together with dedicated volunteers from Badhan (voluntary blood donor organization) travelled to remote locations and identified deserving candidates and accomplished the distribution in an orderly way.
While distributing the materials to a certain location, we brought the local government officials in the loop. Before the distribution to each location, a group of 2-3 volunteers visited the place and went door-to-door to collect necessary data. Once selected, a token was handed over to the beneficiary. They were all provided with the details of the distribution date and venue. On the day of the distribution, the beneficiaries showed up at the venue, handed over the token and collected a blanket. While selecting beneficiaries, the following facts were taken into consideration –
No discriminations are made based on the beneficiary’s religion, race, gender
