The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) on Wednesday formally handed over 200 cyclone shelters repaired under USAID’s “Increasing Community Resilience to Disaster (ICR)” project, implemented by World Vision in southwest Bangladesh. 

USAID Mission Director Kathryn Stevens joined Ranjit Kumar Sen, Additional Secretary of the Ministry of Disaster Management, to virtually handover the cyclone shelters, said the US Embassy in Dhaka

The shelters provide over 100,000 community and project participants across Koyra, Dacope, Shyamnagar and Kaliganj upazilas with access to safe and secure shelters during disasters such as cyclones and flooding and are the latest demonstration of the long-standing US commitment to the people

of Bangladesh.
