Chan Banu is an unemployed domestic worker in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Chan and her husband both lost their jobs due to Covid-19 and have been struggling to pay the rent, put food on the table and pay for their daughter’s education.


Thanks to your generosity last year, we distributed food packages – designed to feed a family of four for a month – to women in Dhaka who had lost their jobs. Chan, who was one of the recipients, said: “I am able to cook in the morning and feed my daughter… This food is saving us from starvation.”
