‘Help Desk’ has been set up at the offices of the ward councillors of Dhaka North City Corporation and Dhaka South City Corporation with an aim to provide slum dwellers with necessary services.

The pilot project titled ‘Slum-based Citizen Action Network (SCAN)’ is being supported both technically and financially by the European Union (EU), says a press release.

Resource Integration Centre (RIC) and Solidarities International (SI) have been jointly collaborating with the initiative. Initially, wards 2, 3 and 5 under DNCC and wards 22, 24 and 25 under DSCC have been brought under the project.
