MetLife Foundation donates Tk 2 crore to Sajida Foundation

With the aim of providing healthcare and financial support to financially vulnerable people impacted by COVID-19 in Bangladesh, MetLife Foundation is donating Tk2 crore to SAJIDA Foundation, a non-profit organisation, says press release.

This is a new donation from MetLife Foundation in response to the urgent COVID-19 situation in the country.

With this funding, SAJIDA Foundation, through its Keraniganj Hospital, will be able to increase the capacity to provide free of charge COVID-19 medical treatment, including ICU support to a large number of financially vulnerable and low-income patients. SAJIDA Foundation’s Keraniganj Hospital contains 100 general beds and has dedicated 6 ICUs and 22 semi-critical beds for COVID-19 patients.

A portion of the fund will also be utilised to provide financial support to a number of vulnerable families whose sole earning members have passed away due to COVID-19.

“We are very proud of the efforts of MetLife Foundation in mitigating the impacts of the ongoing COVID-19 situation in Bangladesh,” said Ala Ahmad, MetLife Bangladesh General Manager. “We stand with our fellow citizens at this time of need and will do our very best to give necessary assistance to the health and wellbeing needs of the people affected by this pandemic.”

In addition to MetLife Foundation’s donation, MetLife employees globally will be able to donate to relief efforts and have their contributions matched by the foundation.
