My name is Shamim, I am a disability activist in Bangladesh

“Lockdown meant many people could not leave their homes to buy food. They were in danger of being forgotten and at risk of starvation. I knew people wanted to help, but they didn’t know how. So, I started to coordinate the emergency response.”

Your donation today will ensure that people with disabilities are not forgotten.

What is happening in Bangladesh?

Bangladesh is a country with a massive population, a staggering 10% of which are believed to be disabled (over 16 million people) and many of them live in challenging rural areas. 

Disabled activists in Bangladesh have reported that 63% of people with disabilities are not receiving the same support as non-disabled people.

Your support for our appeal is urgent - please donate today. 

Our research shows that on average, disabled people’s earnings have reduced to less than half (from £167 a month to £58).

Many people are now struggling to feed their families and surviving on less than a meal a day.

Our funders will match your gift.

Help us to give people in Bangladesh a future with dignity as they rebuild their lives following the destruction of COVID-19.

For every £1 you donate, our funders will give a further £1 towards our work. That means a £36 donation will be worth £72 today.

Donations received up to £5,800 will be matched. Your donation will support our disability activists and partners across Africa and Asia to fight COVID-19, poverty, and exclusion.
