The response will provided food packs and cash support to over 7,500 poor families  

Educo Bangladesh has launched a Covid-19 emergency response to help ensure vulnerable children and their families survive the devastating impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The response will provide cash support, food packs, and health hygiene support to 7,684 struggling families, a press release said on Thursday.

Educo also expressed concerns over the impact of low-income families being unable to earn for their children and themselves during the lockdown.

Educo Bangladesh Country Director Abdul Hamid said: “We know that the ordeal is far from over even when the national lockdown has been eased, especially that many informal and subsistence wage earners have lost their jobs. 

“We know from experience that loss of income for many vulnerable families will have lasting impact on the well-being and health of children. They are also most affected now that schools have been closed and many children do not have access to learning alternatives.”

Educo also said the coronavirus ordeal may be far from over, posing long-term devastating effects on children living in slums and tribal communities.
