DHPB, Scouts, BRAC to work jointly to fight Covid-19

Distressed, health workers, police, conservancy workers to get cash, hygiene goods, PPE

To support the front line soldiers, engaged actively in fighting against COVID-19, poor and disadvantaged families in the current circumstances, Dettol Harpic Porichchonno Bangladesh (DHPB) is going to donate hygiene products, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and other health kits for preventing the spread of coronavirus in different areas of Bangladesh through a partnership with Bangladesh Scouts and BRAC.

The number of corona-infected people is rising every day in the country. As there is no alternative to prevention except for staying away from the virus, people are staying at home quarantine. Disadvantaged families are becoming the worst affected by this lockdown as they are unable to do their regular work.

Meanwhile, hundreds of doctors, nurses, law-enforcers, volunteers and conservancy workers are working relentlessly day after day to keep people safe from the virus and to treat them while they are infected. While they themselves are at a risk of Infection.

To support this challenging situation, “Dettol Harpic Porichchonno Bangladesh” will donate hygiene products viz. Dettol soaps, Harpic, etc. to 50 thousand families throughout the country. These will be distributed through BRAC, the largest development organisation in the world, so that these could be distributed among the people at disadvantaged communities. They will also partner with BRAC and provide cash donation to 500 poor and needy families to run humanitarian programme towards COVID support in rural Bangladesh.

Bangladesh Scouts and DHPB have been working jointly since 2019 for promoting a healthy and clean Bangladesh. Now for ensuring the safety of the frontline corona-fighters, DHPB will be donating PPEs and Dettol and Harpic products for law-enforcers, healthcare professionals, and municipal workers. 

Under this donation more than 50 thousand police, 13 thousand cleaners and 15 thousand health care front line workers will get hygiene products viz. Dettol and Harpic. Apart from that, DHPB will also donate PPE, musk and hand sanitizer for the people. These will be donated in partnership with Bangladesh Scouts. 

Earlier this month, DHPB also donated Dettol soap that were distributed among disadvantaged families by the Bangladesh Scouts. They also jointly conducted several campaigns to facilitate students to learn about the prevention of COVID-19 through online training, poetry recitation, Hand wash challenge, painting and book reading competition during the period of their home quarantine.

BRAC, Bangladesh Scouts and Dettol Harpic Porichchonno Bangladesh also request everyone to follow WHO guidelines and Bangladesh Govt’s instructions on hygiene practices to prevent the spread of Corona Virus and pray for a speedy normalisation of the situation.
