Fires can cause significant damage to buildings, homes, and infrastructure. It can also pose serious risks to human life. In Bangladesh we see that many incidents occur relating to fire. For example, In Majirpara village, on October 17th, 2021, establishments belonging to members of the Hindu community were set on fire by a mob. Families lost their valuable belongings. At least 20 homes were completely burnt in the village of Ramnathpur Union in the attack. In addition, a devastating fire in Mirpur-12 Slums has left over 1000 houses burnt, further exacerbating the hardships faced by an already impoverished community.
In response to the emergency crisis in Majirpara village, Rangpur District, where many families faced the loss of shelter, food, cattle, and more, the Amal Foundation took compassionate action by distributing essential dry food support to alleviate the suffering of these families. Moreover, Amal Foundation took immediate action and went to Mirpur to assess the situation firsthand after the devastating fire in Mirpur-12 Slums. Additionally, the foundation distributed dry food and medicine among the slum people to provide immediate relief.
Amidst an emergency crisis, Amal Foundation exhibited deep compassion, swiftly engaging in actions that extended beyond distributing essential items to alleviate families’ suffering. Their immediate response encompassed a firsthand assessment of the situation in both locations, demonstrating a commitment to understanding and addressing the urgent needs of those affected.
