The Covid19 pandemic is global and it will strike all countries without distinction.
Western countries such as France, Spain or Italy are already strongly impacted, due to the inadequacy of medical infrastructure or the insufficient number of protective equipment such as masks.
In so-called poor countries, the situation is even worse. Sometimes the basic minimum is missing, starting with soap, when we know that the first barrier is to wash your hands regularly.
Companions from the Bangladesh IWA section, BASF-AIT, are launching a fundraising campaign with Australian companions to buy and distribute soap to workers at the tea plantations in Shyllet. They are among the poorest and most exploited in Bangladesh, often surviving on less than 2 euros a day for themselves and their families.
Donations can be made online at the following address:
