The BRAC Bank has contributed to Prime Minister's Relief and Welfare Fund in providing food to the people affected by Covid-19.
The bank has handed over a cheque Tk 5crore to the Bangladesh Association of Banks (BAB) on Thursday, as part of this contribution, reads a press release.
The BAB, in a virtual meeting held on April 26, proposed to extend emergency food support through the Prime Minister's Relief and Welfare Fund to the people who are badly affected by COVID-19.
"BRAC Bank is honoured to be able to support the marginalized people in this difficult time. COVID-19 has impacted millions who are struggling to meet the ends and this is a small contribution that would mitigate the suffering in the time of crisis. We would continue supporting the people who need help," said Selim RF Hussain, the managing director and CEO of BRAC Bank.
Earlier in March, BRAC Bank also contributed Tk 5crore in favour of Bangabandhu Memorial Trust as part of a contribution to the Prime Minister's Ashrayan-2 project to support the homeless marking the Mujib Borsho and the golden jubilee of Bangladesh's independence.
