Jamie joins BFF to feed less fortunate

National football team coach Jamie Day joined hands with the Bangladesh Football Federation, who continued their programme to provide food to the less fortunate, especially those who have been struggling to earn a living due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The British coach, who is also staying at his England home, bore the cost of meals for 300 people. The BFF has been providing this service outside the BFF House since March 27 and will continue till April 11.

"I know the current situation in Bangladesh. Less fortunate people need food and I want to help them in any way I can. Bangladesh is my second home so I thought that I if could help in a small way by feeding some people, then that needed to be done," Jamie told The Daily Star.

Although he is in England with his family, Jamie and his coaching staff have kept an eye on national players through Whatsapp, where they have been posting tips to keep the players fit while they are on home quarantine.

"The Whatsapp group is so that we can advise and help players over this period both physically and mentally," Jamie said.

"We will put a weekly training programme on there and diet sheets to help the players and they are also putting training videos on the group so we can see the work they are doing," Jamie said, adding that the players need to stick to social distancing.
