Bangladeshi celebrities extend support for people in need

Bangladeshi celebrities extend support for people in need

Amid the government holidays in Bangladesh in order to prevent the transmission of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), celebrities are doing their bit to support those in need.

With film and television shoots being postponed indefinitely, the showbiz industry is already feeling the impact of the unofficial ‘lockdown’.

To create awareness about the pandemic, celebrities have taken to social media with songs and a variety of posts.

But some celebrities are going the extra mile at this moment of crisis. While taking proper precautions against the virus, they are supporting those who have no proper access to food or sanitation products during the lockdown.

Popular actress Apu Biswas on March 27 distributed 2,000 masks and gloves to 100 daily-wage earners along with food for five days at the gate of the Bashundhara residential area in the capital.

Ashraful Alom—better known as Hero Alom—distributed rice, flour, lentils, salt, and oil to 500 families of daily-wage earners in villages within the Bogra, Sherpur, Kahalu, and Nandigram areas.

Actress Sadika Parvin Popy was seen distributing over 3,500 masks and hand sanitisers to the people in need.

Last week, actor Ananta Jalil provided 500 packets of rations to daily-wage artistes and production crew at BFDC in the capital.

Singer Moushumi Akter Salma, acting through Safia Foundation, provided food to more than 200 people.

Actor Saimon Sadik, along with some friends, provided 400 packets of rations to daily-wage earners in Rampura, Hatirjheel, Dhanmondi, and Karwan Bazar, among other parts of the capital.

Also among the Good Samaritans was actress Adhora Khan, who handed out 100 food packets to the people in need in her locality. Actors Sanju John and Joy Chowdhury pitched in too, distributing 200 food packets in Rampura and Aftabnagar.

Actor Bappi Chowdhury enlisted the help of local volunteers. Together, they distributed rations and donations to daily-wage earners in the Feni, Lokkhipur, Jatrabari, and Shyambazar areas.
