With the support of many donors, employees at Boeing, volunteers in Bangladesh, SpaandanB has been able to complete the distribution of relief materials carried on board two new aircrafts of Biman Bangladesh as part of the Humanitarian Delivery Flight program of Boeing. The flights reached Bangladesh on March 24th. 326 boxes of donated materials, weighing about 10,220 lbs, which included “Artifical Limb”, Kids toys and lightly used dresses for Men and Women, were sent to Bangladesh. SpaandanB officials, with the help of volunteers and partners, quickly cleared the items from customs and dispatched them to various distribution centers throughout Bangladesh.
Artificial Limb kits were donated by Limbs International Inc., a company head-quartered at El Paso, Texas. These kits were delivered to Centre for Disability in Development (CDD) at Savar, Bangladesh. Toys and kids clothes were distributed at various SpaandanB operated schools for education for kids living in slums. Also, they were distributed to Ashic Foundation, an organization to provide treatment for childhood cancer, and Dhaka Medical College Pediatric unit. Remaining boxes were distributed at various places in Dinajpur, Bogra, Rangpur, Kurigram and Natore.
