“The pandemic COVID-19 has thrown an extraordinary challenge all around us and our work has never been more relevant than now. The resolve of the CARE Bangladesh team, especially those working on the frontlines everyday while risking their own lives, has truly been humbling to watch. However, with the number of infected cases still on the rise, its effect on the system is not just short and intermediate. The overall harsh impact on the economy, livelihoods and women and children will be long lasting. We recognize our efforts would require additional resources to support communities to survive and thrive. Any investment now, from us, partners and donors would go a long way in building a resilient Bangladesh.
