AmCham COVID-19 Support Initiative (Phase-2) for HEALTHCARE
H.E. Earl R. Miller, Ambassador of the United States of America to Bangladesh attended the ceremony as “Guest of Honor” and spoke on the occasion. The program was chaired by the AmCham President, Mr. Syed Ershad Ahmed while Ms. Zahida Fizza Kabir, CEO of Sajida Foundation briefed the participants about the Project details.
While we experience the decreasing number of COVID-19 cases every day and the vaccination provide a safeguard against the deadly coronavirus, we sadly found hospitals outside divisional headquarters are severely understaffed and do not have critical equipment to treat the overwhelmed number of patients in life-threatening state. The pressing need to respond to the worsening situation in those hospitals remains unresolved.
The American Chamber of Commerce in Bangladesh (AmCham), following up early instances to support the society and as part of its responsibility, has initiated the project with approval from DGHS in association with Sajida Foundation to
in 3 public hospitals at Jashore, Chuadanga & Pabna districts.
AmCham with the generous support of its members initiated another project last year for a sustainable food safety through helping CVOID affected farmers and their families. We also awarded the frontline journalists for the excellent economic reports while the world was battling the Pandemic. AmCham sincerely hopes to come forward in the dire states of the nation, as always.
A good number of AmCham members including the Executive Committee, foreign dignitaries, business leaders, media representatives and other distinguished guests attended the inauguration ceremony.
