Crisis in Bangladesh!

By now you are aware about the devastation of hurricane SIDR which took away around 3,500 lives (as roughly counted up to 20.11.2007, the figure is raising daily) and damaged all most all the properties of the people in the south, south-western coastal parts of Bangladesh. The damages are not repairable. Nevertheless, to help mitigate the sufferings of the affected people and to assist them in their survival YES-alumni Bangladesh & Bangladesh Education and Resource Network (bEARN)/iEARN-Bangladesh have taken a decision to distribute relief in the form of food grains. In this solemn venture YES-alumni members are raising funds. Also bEARN will participate by donating money in their efforts.

A team of 10 members consisting of YES-alumni and bEARN staff will physically go to Patuakhali district, southern part of Bangladesh and worse affected area in the SIDR, on 21st November 2007 to distribute relief and to console the people there in their time need. The team will purchase 2& ½ metric tons of rice and ½ metric ton pulse which will be distributed amongst the affected people at Patuakhali.
For information, this is not the end. We will take some more drives to raise funds from available sources and later distribute them in suitable forms. In this respect we would appreciate any kind of cooperation and assistance in our humanitarian services from any person & corner.
