Distribution of Winter Clothing
A large number of people in Bangladesh live under the poverty line and with the touch of misery due to extreme cold in winter season. In the north zone of Bangladesh, the percentage of poor people live below the poverty line is quite high. Their existence can also be found in our capital. Many of them are child. They cannot afford to buy winter clothes to keep them warm. So, to give them some warm care, Meridian Group distributes Quilt and Clothes to these people in winter season. At every winter season, Meridian runs this program very eagerly.
Being a natural disastrous country, Bangladesh has to face lots of natural disasters almost each year. As a helping hand of the Government of Bangladesh, Meridian Group reaches its hands to the affected people at the time of natural disaster all over the country. Meridian Group has a Relief Fund to operate this program. It donates its relief to the Honorable Prime Minister’s Relief Fund, Protom alo Relief Fund, Lions International Club, Dist: 315 before Inner Wheel Club, Dist: 345 and Chander Hat, a National Children, Youth & Juvenile Organization. Even sometimes we personally donate the relief to the affected people.
