'Save the Children is hugely grateful to Facebook for its commitment to help families after previous floods in Asia and again this year'

Social networking site Facebook has donated $250,000 to Save the Children, to help the flood affected children and their families in Bangladesh, recently.

The donation will go towards providing emergency aid, food, water, and sanitation to help people through the storms in coming months. 

President and CEO of Save the Children Carolyn Miles expressed her gratitude to Facebook and said: “The monsoon season in Bangladesh is putting hundreds of thousands of people at risk and we must do everything we can to keep children protected and safe during this time.

“Save the Children is hugely grateful to Facebook for its commitment to help families after previous floods in Asia and again this year.”

Other organizations are also helping people on the ground, and over the next two weeks, direct relief will match every donation made to Hope Hospital on Facebook via Facebook Fundraiser, up to $100,000.
