Bangladesh ODI captain Tamim Iqbal has been named World Food Programme’s National Goodwill Ambassador in Bangladesh.

WFP confirmed Tamim’s appointment on June 1 through a press release.

“I am honoured to be named as National Goodwill Ambassador of WFP - the United Nations agency that fights hunger worldwide, including in my own country Bangladesh,” Tamim was quoted as saying in the release.

“Although Bangladesh has made impressive economic growth in recent years, poverty is still rampant, especially in rural parts of the country. For many, the current COVID-19 crisis is making their lives much more challenging. I hope to do my part to help WFP fight hunger and restore hope for families and communities that need our support,” he said.

As the Goodwill Ambassador Tamim will work to raise awareness about WFP programmes in Bangladesh which cover 64 districts across the country through its school feeding, nutrition, livelihoods, and refugee operations in Cox’s Bazar.

“As an accomplished athlete, beloved by many both inside and outside Bangladesh, Tamim brings with him not only his popularity and reach, but his incredible work ethic, compassion and humanitarian spirit. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have him joining our WFP family,” As Country Representative and Director for WFP Bangladesh, Richard Ragan, said.
