Jamie Day has fed 300 less fortunate people of Bangladesh who are either forced to work or workless amid the countrywide lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The national football team head coach has been stuck in his house in London but is always up to date with his second home, Bangladesh, and often shares his concerns with regards to the coronavirus outbreak.

The English coach has now expanded his hands to the people with low income, specially the daily wage earners of Dhaka, through the Bangladesh Football Federation.

The BFF has been distributing lunch to around 200-300 people of the capital’s commercial hub in Motijheel every day since the government announced general holiday from March 26 onwards to contain the spread of the virus.

Wednesday's expenses for the feeding of 300 less fortunate people by the BFF were provided by Day, confirmed Ahsan Ahmed Amit, the media manager of BFF.

“He [Day] welcomed BFF’s every-day initiative to feed the needy people in these difficult days of the corona. He also urged the privileged ones to come forward and support such initiatives,” said Amit Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the food distributing program in front of the BFF House is attended by many low-income earners like domestic workers, orphan children, rickshawpullers, workers of grocery shops and physically challenged people. 

The BFF’s program will continue until at least April 9 as the government Tuesday decided to extend the ongoing nationwide holiday for five more days.
