The China Red Cross Society (RCSC) has donated 200,000 to the Bangladesh Red Crescent Society (BDRCS) to help those affected by the recent floods. This information was given in a press release sent from BDRCS on Wednesday (July 7). On Wednesday, Chinese Ambassador to Bangladesh Li Jimming handed over the check to Major General (retd) ATM Abdul Wahhab, Chairman of the BDRCS, inside the Embassy, the statement said.
At the time, Ambassador Li Jimming said, China is a long-term partner of Bangladesh. This has been proved by China’s assistance in Bangladesh’s Covid-19 activities and other disaster relief efforts.
He further said that RCSC has taken initiative to provide necessary assistance to deal with the flood situation in Sylhet. This is another example of how China is always on the side of Bangladesh. China is also keen to strengthen cooperation with Bangladesh in the field of disaster relief and emergency services. As a result, the welfare of the people of our two countries will be further strengthened.
Speaking on the occasion, Abdul Wahhab said, “We have never seen such floods in the region (Sylhet).” Millions of people have taken refuge elsewhere as their homes have been submerged and almost all of their surroundings have been flooded.”
He added that the Red Crescent volunteer team is helping people in disaster areas with much-needed dry and cooked food and safe drinking water. This grant from the Chinese Red Cross Society will help us carry out relief and recovery activities in the affected areas.
BDRCS Management Council Member M Manjurul Islam and Secretary General Kazi Shafiqul Azam were present on the occasion.
