World Renew has been working in Bangladesh since 1972.
Almost half of the population of Bangladesh lives on less than one dollar a day. Moreover, about one-third of the country floods each year during the monsoon season. Yet, despite these hurdles, the Bangladesh people have made great strides in improving their lives over the past three decades. Through programs in health, literacy, justice education, small business development, and income generation, people are learning to overcome poverty permanently.
COVID COUNTRY UPDATE
Community development work in-country has shifted to remote due to the outbreak. Group activities and trainings have been postponed, and all partners are now operating under their COVID-19 contingency protocols. Nutrition projects with CFGB continue in the North, in compliance with all COVID-19 contingency protocols.
The most dire situation in Bangladesh relates to the Rohingya refugee population. The World Health Organization is monitoring the temperatures of all workers entering the camps and World Renew is engaged in maintaining programming through emergency virtual meetings with nonprofit partners from around the world. With our local partner office inside the refugee camp, our priority is preparing and maintaining the strictest health guidelines for these refugee communities and attempting to shelter these populations from the outbreak.
