Mission Save Bangladesh, the joint initiative by The Daily Star, Sheba.xyz, and Samakal, has received backing from more brands which came forward with their financial and strategic support.
At a time when the government is taking preventive measures to tackle the deadly coronavirus (Covid-19), people have had to isolate themselves in their own homes and as a result many day-to-day wage earners are facing an uphill battle to maintain their livelihoods.
So far, Mission Save Bangladesh has received donations amounting to Tk 30,39,979 from different private organisations and NGOs, with which the initiative will be supporting more than 2,000 underprivileged families.
Besides providing the families with groceries, Mission Save Bangladesh has also been carrying out community-based activities like disinfecting public places.
