MetLife Foundation has donated Tk 20 million to SAJIDA Foundation, a non-profit organisation, with a vision to ensure health, happiness and dignity for the people of the country.

This is a new donation from MetLife Foundation in response to the urgent Covid-19 situation in the country, said a press release.

With this funding, SAJIDA Foundation, through its Keraniganj Hospital, will be able to increase the capacity to provide free of charge Covid-19 medical treatment, including ICU support to a large number of financially vulnerable and low-income patients.

SAJIDA Foundation’s Keraniganj Hospital contains 100 general beds and has dedicated 6 ICUs and 22 semi-critical beds for Covid-19 patients.

A portion of the fund will also be utilized to provide financial support to a number of vulnerable families whose sole earning members have passed away due to Covid-19.
