POVERTY IN BANGLADESH
In Bangladesh, children face huge challenges from the moment they’re born. Despite progress, millions of families still live below the poverty line. Rates of stunting due to malnutrition are among the highest in the world. Potentially life-threatening childhood diseases, such as pneumonia and diarrhoea, are common.
Many children are at risk of trafficking, exploitation, abuse and early marriage. Others are forced by family circumstances into dangerous jobs. And, in a country heavily impacted by climate change, natural disasters such as floods, cyclones and rising sea levels pose an increasingly grave threat.
The Mirchiz Appeal is one of our most exciting new projects. Every single day, we are grateful for the opportunities that have been presented to us and all the small things that may seem insignificant to us and taken for granted.
At the same time, we also think about those across the world who have not been given the same privileges. The Mirchiz Appeal was created as part of our desire to give back to the communities in Bangladesh. We are proud to announce the launch of the charity which will work in Bangladesh from the little or large profits generated by our company
CHANGE IS POSSIBLE
But our programmes have proven that change is possible. We’re working in the poorest and most precarious communities to help families increase food production and develop sustainable livelihoods. And we’re supporting community health workers to increase families’ understanding of good nutrition and hygiene.
