'Escape the COVID-19' is a project under the guidance of Dhaka University Environment society engaging a good number of youngsters to fight against the coronavirus.
Fighting the corona virus (COVID-19) has now become the most crucial task for the world. Starting from China, this virus is spreading its deadly effects crossing all the borders and taking almost every country into its grip. Almost every developed country around the world is hard hit by COVID-19. Despite having strict rules and regulations, facilities and potentials the death toll is continuously rising in the developed countries. Italy, Spain, the USA are glittering examples.
Bangladesh is far behind from the developed countries in tackling the corona virus. Being the most densely populated country and having no systemic way of waste management, this country has higher chances to get affected badly. Besides the people are not taking any cautionary activities to fight against corona. Moreover due to lack of management and employment of rules, the stuffs to handle coronavirus like mask, hand sanitizer, gloves are getting out of market and becoming very costly. In the last 5 days, 8 coroner-affected persons were reported in Bangladesh. In the recent week about 115000 people returned to Bangladesh from various corona affected country( Source: www.prothomalo.com 16 march 2020) It wont take long to increase the number of corona affected patients and then it will become very tough for the Government of Bangladesh to handle the situation.
Our organization has been working with a view to creating awareness among the people on the slogan, "Not panic, awareness is the main revenge". We have a goal to give away masks, gloves, hand sanitizers and germ killing hexisol to 10000 people. Till now we have given some people these stuffs and raised awareness campaigns with our own fundings. But this source of funding is going to end soon. As a student we do not have endless source of income. We need the help of people from all over the world to reach our goal and help Bangladesh fight Coronavirus. Your donation will be highly appreciated and remembered.
