StanChart donates 7,000 Sehri meals to distressed families

To share the blessings of Ramadan with its clients and the community, Standard Chartered has donated over 7,000 meals to families who lost their livelihoods due to adverse impact of Covid-19.

The meals have been shared on behalf of the bank’s clients in the spirit of the holy month. The packages were prepared and distributed in partnership with Bidyanondo Foundation across Dhaka, the bank said in a press statement.

Naser  Ezaz  Bijoy, CEO of Standard Chartered Bangladesh, said, “Each Ramadan, we have had the good fortune of sharing meals together with our clients. While we did not have the privilege to do so this year, we are fortunate to have been able to share meals with the vulnerable communities during the holy month on behalf of our clients.”

 “The pandemic has laid bare the fault lines of the society, leaving the less fortunate more vulnerable than ever. This act of kindness is a token of our solidarity of purpose, as we work together to heal these fault lines. The pandemic is a tragic and painful reminder of the need to build a more resilient and equitable society, and together, we will rise to this call,” he added.

The bank had announced a broad range of support measures for its retail customers and businesses, including loan repayment holidays, fee waivers or cancellations and loan extension facilities, in addition to the government-led support measures. It has initiated a US$1 billion global financing programme for companies that provide goods and services to help the fight against COVID-19. It has also launched a US$50 million fund aiding communities affected by the pandemic across its global footprint, including Bangladesh, the statement added.
