Readymade garment exporter and manufacturer Modele Group on Friday started distributing relief materials to 1,300 families, who are affected by river erosion, in five upazilas under Manikganj.

This program was part of many others initiatives undertaken by the Narayanganj-based company that has expanded its CSR operations to lend a hand to those suffering during the Covid-19 pandemic, according to a press release.

Manikganj’s Deputy Commissioner SM Ferdous inaugurated the relief distribution ceremony, which was held maintaining social distance and also attended by Shibaloy Upazila Nirbahi Officer BM Ruhul Amin Rimon and Modele Group Executive Director Shamsul Haque Ripon.

“According to the prime minister’s orders, the business institutions must work together to tackle the Covid 19 crisis,” said Ferdous, and thanked Modele Group for stepping up to aid those affected by river erosion.

Urging everyone to adhere to the health guidelines during the pandemic, he said: “It is everyone’s collective efforts that has brought the coronavirus situation in Manikganj under control compared to other districts.”

The three-day food distribution program was launched to aid 1,300 families affected by river erosion in Shibaloy, Daulatpur, Ghior, Harirampur and Sadar upazilas, said the press release.

In addition to helping those hit by river-erosion, Modele Group also extended a helping hand to overcome the Covid-19 crisis.

At the onset of the pandemic, the company had undertaken a nearly Tk6 crore initiative to aid people in Narayanganj hit by the crisis, the release said. Their four-tier programs included raising awareness, cleaning drives along with distributing food aid, medical equipment and cash distribution among the people of the district.

The company also distributed food aid among 1,000 families in Mymensingh.

Their initiatives, which also include providing free ambulance service to coronavirus patients, have drawn accolades from different quarters.

Modele Group believes that regional awareness and creating defence zones alongside government initiatives are imperative to tackle the Covid 19 crisis, said the press release.
