Bangladesh's Harsh Economic Realities

Despite its notable economic progress in recent years, Bangladesh has been grappling with various crises that have resulted in significant socio-economic challenges for its population. The inflow of Rohingya refugees in 2016, the impact of COVID-19 and the exacerbation of natural disasters due to climate change have all had a detrimental effect on the livelihoods of many individuals in Bangladesh. The loss of employment and homes as a result of lockdowns and floods have left a significant portion of the population at risk of starvation. It is imperative that we provide assistance to Bangladesh in addressing these pressing issues.

We help Bangladesh fight hunger

We are a diverse group of international volunteers, fundraising for the economically disadvantaged people of Bangladesh. In a food secure world, it is unacceptable to allow people to starve. Thus, our primary goal is to ensure emergency sustenance for those struck by catastrophes. While dry food distribution and cash transfer remain our primary focus, we are also involved in other emergency responses such as providing covid medical supplies, distributing winter blankets, and more recently venturing into WASH projects. We fund rigorously vetted NGOs and grassroots volunteer groups to deliver food when and where it is most needed.

Making Each Dollar Count

Our aim is to collect and distribute donations to NGOs and grassroot volunteers who are making the biggest difference in fighting hunger and helping those in need. In addition to raising awareness and collecting donations, we are deeply committed to using funds most effectively.

Our commitment, expertise, and accountability ensures that every dollar contributed through us is utilized most efficiently. All members of the Nourish Bangladesh team are volunteers and do not work for any of the NGOs or grassroots projects we are vetting.

We urge you to join us in our fight to alleviate the plights of the Bangladeshi people and help save lives from being lost to hunger, poverty, natural disasters, and other emergencies.

A word from our donors

During Covid-19 pandemic, while the whole world was at a halt; Bangladesh being a third world country has felt the hit hard. With the majority of the country’s population falling in the middle and poor in the social class spectrum, coping up with such a huge world emergency was a challenge. In that time, I volunteered with Nourish Bangladesh to distribute food items in both the urban and rural areas of the country on a need basis. The marginalized communities, Ex: sex-workers, transgenders, coastal areas people were not overlooked during this time of need and was supported through providing food for them. The country’s geographical location makes it very vulnerable to natural disasters. In 2022, a massive flood left the region of Sylhet crippled. People lost their homes, access to shelter, food and proper sanitation. At times like this we were able to extend a helping hand towards these flood victims thanks to Nourish Bangladesh’s support. As a vetted volunteer I was also able to contribute in supporting the fire accident victims that took place in Shitakundo, Chattogram– which was truly a big tragedy this country faced. I am proud to be able to volunteer as a part of Nourish, and glad that I was able to do my part as a citizen and social worker during these hard times with their support.
