With your generous help, SpaandanB has provided 2500 blankets to cold stricken disadvantaged people of Bangladesh. We started the drive to collect fund for this project in late November of 2014, before the onset of the harsh winter. In very short time we raised more than $6,000. SpaandanB Bangladesh office, teamed up with volunteers from Badhan and other individuals, procured blankets from local market. We purchased two sizes of the blankets, large ones for about $3.50 a piece and small ones for about $2.00 a piece. The small ones are primarily targeted for kids. Our volunteers travelled to distant Northern part of Bangladesh where the bite of the cold is the harshest and identified deserving candidates and distributed the blankets. Students of SpaandanB slum schools are also provided with blankets. On behalf of SpaandanB, we like to extend our heartiest gratitude to our donors for making this possible.
