Under this relief initiative, around 2,000 families will be getting food packs including rice, red lentils, potatoes, salt, sugar, oral saline etc.
Zunaid Ahmed Palak says, “Pandemic has distressed individuals and business organizations. On top of that the recent flood has pushed the remote people into sorrow. And realizing the fact, even in challenges due to pandemic, a responsible company, Huawei Bangladesh, has come forward to aid the people in need.”
