WorldFish helps fishermen combat coronavirus

WorldFish Bangladesh is providing support to the fishing community of the country to combat the impact of coronavirus pandemic, which has badly affected their livelihood. 

The organisation is distributing leaflets and liquid soaps, conducting hands washing training, and disinfecting boats and fishing equipment in Cox’s Bazar and other coastal districts along the Meghna river systems to protect the fishing community.

USAID-funded ECOFISHII activity of WorldFish and Department of Fisheries Bangladesh is implementing the activities, says a press release. 

Awareness messages are being spread through religious leaders in the mosques, temples and churches as part of the programme.
