Humanitarian Support to Cold Wave affected People

HOPE'87 logo_2008

On January 18th, 2023, the Bangladesh Meteorological Department reported a cold wave sweeping over various districts, including Rangpur, Rajshahi, Mymensingh divisions and Tangail. The weather remained dry but very cold, and night and day temperatures remained nearly unchanged. The cold wave caused crop losses and long-term negative impacts on Bangladesh’s economy. Fog covered roads and highways, disrupting ferry services, ports and air traffic schedules. The people who were most vulnerable to this cold wave were the underprivileged and poor in rural areas, with women, children, and the elderly being the most affected.

To help these people overcome the cold wave, HOPE’87 Bangladesh distributed blankets to 1,000 most affected families as well as food packages to 500 vulnerable female-headed households and their children, including soybean oil, noodles, toasted biscuits and Vaseline. According to the project plan, the project team assessed the cold wave-affected areas and listed the most vulnerable families in the targeted areas of Dhaka city slum areas, Challanbil areas under Tarash Upazilla of Sirajganj district, Bhatgram Union under Sadullapur Upazila of Gaibandha district and the Chittagong city slum areas. The distributions took place through the HOPE’87 night school and mobile quality school programmes.
