With the aim of providing healthcare and financial support to financially vulnerable people impacted by Covid-19 in Bangladesh, MetLife Foundation is donating Tk2 crore to SAJIDA Foundation.

This is a new donation from MetLife Foundation in response to the urgent Covid-19 situation in the country, the organization said in a press release.

With this funding, SAJIDA Foundation, through its Keraniganj Hospital, will be able to increase the capacity to provide free Covid-19 medical treatment, including ICU support, to a large number of financially vulnerable and low-income patients.

SAJIDA Foundation’s Keraniganj Hospital contains 100 general beds and has dedicated 6 ICUs and 22 semi-critical beds for Covid-19 patients.

The high treatment cost of Covid-19 makes it very difficult for the low-income families to manage the medical expenses.

The funding will enable SAJIDA Foundation to also provide wellbeing support to recovered patients and continue providing the free of charge medical treatment for a longer period.

A portion of the fund will also be utilized to provide financial support to a number of vulnerable families whose sole earning members have passed away due to Covid-19.

“We are very proud of the efforts of MetLife Foundation in mitigating the impacts of the ongoing COVID-19 situation in Bangladesh,” said Ala Ahmad, MetLife Bangladesh general manager.

“We stand with our fellow citizens at this time of need and will do our very best to give necessary assistance to the health and wellbeing needs of the people affected by this pandemic.”

In addition to MetLife Foundation’s donation, MetLife employees globally will be able to donate to relief efforts and have their contributions matched by the foundation.
