Corona measures

To our valued partners and well-wishers, 

We are all affected by the Corona outbreak. As GHRD, we are taking measures to minimise the impact. 

For now we have rescheduled our Global Human Rights Development Training because most people cannot travel. Please check the update on GHRD training here.   

This does not mean that our efforts to support minorities and people in need in our partner countries are also cancelled due to Corona. Supporting minorities and people in need should continue. Keeping this in mind our partner organisation in Bangladesh – REO (Research and Empowerment organisation) youth team from Norshinsi district are distributing hand sanitizers and soaps to minorities and people in need who do not have access to such basic necessities of life. 

Youth workers from Sattekiya village have also set up water taps and have distributed hand sanitizers in their communities. These youth workers from REO are also making sure that their community members are following the measures by washing their hands with soap for 20 seconds as instructed by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and government of Bangladesh. These gestures and efforts of youth workers from REO have also influenced the young people in other villages to follow the same so that they can also keep their loved ones and community safe.
