Eid-ul Fitr, the biggest religious festival of Muslims, brings the opportunity for the well-off to stand by the underprivileged people through donations including Zakat and Fitra.

Over the past few years, many people have been providing financial aid to various charity organizations and individuals through bKash especially during the Eid festival, said a release issued in Dhaka on Saturday, reports BSS.

Last year, bKash added ‘Donation’ icon to its app to make the donation process easier and more systematic. This initiative has enhanced the capacity of the charity organizations to collect donations and enabled the customers to donate more conveniently while sitting at home amid this pandemic. Since then, 7 lakh customers have donated worth 200 million Taka approximately to 50 organizations till now.

bKash has become a partner to many charity organizations by providing a platform to collect donations for the disadvantaged people.

In this context, Kishore Kumar Das, Founder and Chairman of the renowned Bidyanondo Foundation said, “We have continued our efforts to stand by the people with the small yet meaningful participation of all segments of the society. bKash has made it easier for our millions of well-wishers to stand by us and donate.
