All For One Foundation extends support to people in need amid COVID-19 crisis

Amid the coronavirus crisis, All For One Foundation distributed food among 4,000 lower-middle income families in different parts of Dhaka, and 21 other districts of the country, recently.

They also distributed food among 367 sex workers, 100 sweepers, 47 tea workers, 402 differently-abled persons and 92 transgender individuals in Dhaka, Natore, Rajshahi, Panchagarh and Brahmanbaria.

Since April 27, more than 400 young volunteers have been reaching out to the vulnerable families with food, according to Kamrunnesa Mira, founder of the organisation. Their volunteers wear personal protective equipment and practice social distancing as well, during the relief distribution.

With donations, they arranged food packages for the families.  Each package includes rice, lentils, potatoes, onions, salt, cooking oil and soap bars. "In addition, we are helping women who face domestic abuse, with legal assistance. Domestic violence is at its peak right now, as people are staying at their homes. We are providing female victims of domestic violence with free legal counselling over social media and the phone. We have 17 legal advisors working with us voluntarily," said Mira. Around 36 women have received legal support from them till now, she added.

All For One Foundation also aims to educate underprivileged women and girls about menstrual hygiene and provide them with sanitary napkins. Mira, a graduate from University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh in Media Studies and Journalism, started the organisation on March 26 in 2018.
