TBL Raises Funds for Covid-19
Since March 2020, Bangladesh has been experiencing multiple stages of COVID-19 pandemic not only impacting the health sector with the infections & fatalities. The COVID-19 induced containment measures, especially lockdowns, have intensified the needs of vulnerable groups, especially in informal sectors in terms of their livelihood. Many people have lost their jobs and income sources, resulting in an increase in unemployment and poverty in both urban and rural areas throughout the country. Those who have less/no access to social protection, smaller savings or limited alternative sources of income both in urban and rural settings are the most affected ones.
To fight the pandemic, Transcom Bangladesh Limited also wanted to play its part. As a result, six oxygen concentrators were procured and distributed to three hospitals as part of the fund’s accumulation to meet the emergency oxygen needs of COVID patients.
