Roketsan distributed food packages among 1,000 families in Bangladesh through the Turkish Red Crescent.
The food packages were distributed in Narayanganj, one of the country’s worst-hit regions from COVID-19.
The International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), and the Turkish Red Crescent issued a new report that shows the overall impact of COVID-19 on the Emergency Social Safety Net (ESSN) Programme applicants’ lives (both eligible and ineligible).
The report explores the changing trends in people’s employment, income and livelihoods as well as their social relations and coping strategies as a result of the implications born by the COVID-19.
According to the Turkish Red Crescent report, COVID-19 had a negative impact on both eligible and ineligible participants’ daily lives, including their ability to meet basic needs, their employment situation, their social life and psychological health in Bangladesh.
