Pran-RFL Group, one of the leading business conglomerates of the country, distributed food items to the marginalized families affected by the lockdown enforced to curb the spread of coronavirus.
They provided food items to the poor people in various parts of the country including the capital, said a press release.
Food items were distributed among 11,000 families in various parts of Dhaka city and Gazipur, Narsingdi, Rajshahi, Natore and Jhenaidah districts from July 23-30.
Local people’s representatives and administration helped the group to distribute the products.
The food items include rice, pulse, vermicelli, oil, noodles and UHT milk.
"Many families are living helpless life as most of the common people do not have a daily income at this time. That is why we are helping the low-income working people of various professions as part of corporate social responsibility," said Kamruzzaman Kamal, marketing director of Pran-RFL Group.
He also added that PRAN-RFL Group has been playing a leading role to serve the humanity apart from creating employment.
PRAN-RFL group started providing food items to the poor people under "Pashe Achi Bangladesh" program during the first Covid-19 outbreak in the country in March last year.
The group has distributed food and safety items to more than 80,000 families so far under the program who have become workless due to the outbreak.
Moreover, the group donated corona sample collection booth, surgical masks, PPE, hand gloves and hand sanitizers to Director General of Health Services (DGHS) and 19 hospitals in Dhaka, Chattogram and Bhola.
