Help pours in
All along the road from the disaster site to Enam Medical College and Hospital and beyond, they hand out food, water and other relief materials to the victims' relatives and the rescuers.
After the nine-storey Rana Plaza in Savar collapsed on Wednesday morning, people, mostly youths, have been doing a great service to humanity.
While many have joined the rescue operation without caring much about their own lives, others are working to make sure the family members of the injured and trapped workers and the volunteers get what they need to endure these difficult hours.
"Have water", "Take this biryani packet” and "Biscuits are free"—these are the words you'd hear in every few steps.
From a makeshift shed in front of the collapsed building, social organisation Work for Life distributes bread, biscuit, juice, cucumber, banana, mineral water, saline, packets of biryani and khichuri among the rescuers and others.
People and other organisations have brought those food items. Some doctors, with medicines and first-aid kits, have also joined in.
Hundreds of water bottles are stacked at different points on the road.
"Saline here, it's free," chanted young boy Shafiur, who along with four others were volunteering with a drum of saline on a rickshaw van just beside Enam Hospital.
Half a kilometre away, another youth says, "Please have lemon juice. It will be of great help."
Some organisations were doing similar jobs.
Students from different schools, colleges and universities have also come up with voluntary service and aid.
Near the Enam Hospital, Bangladesh Institute of Labour Studies has set up a temporary shelter so that people could take rest. It announces names of the survivors admitted to Savar CMH, Dhaka Medical College Hospital and Pangu Hospital.
Inside Savar Adharchandra High School, where the corpses are lined up, a huge number of people distribute food and water among the relatives of the victims. Even burial clothes are available there.
Meanwhile, without break, Enam Medical College and Hospital has been giving free treatment to the survivors. Around 800 medical students including interns are working round the clock.
