mESSAGE FROM FOUNDERS
All human beings need four basic things to survive: food, clothing, shelter, and medicine. Our goal is to support poor people of Bangladesh as they try to fulfill these needs. As a small gift, we are trying to provide warm blankets as a symbol of shelter.
Loving-kindness and a compassionate life are what bring happiness to oneself. We should love and share with those less fortunate. Therefore, please participate with us in helping those who are most in need. With your participation and support, we can make this life wonderful.
Venerable Bipulananda Bhikkhu
Founder and Advisor
In December 2017 through January 2018, I was very fortunate to be able to take part in giving out blankets to the most needy families in a number of rural villages. I was touched and amazed by the number of women who came to personally thank me for a blanket for their families. Without a common language, they were able to convey their gratitude for something as simple as a blanket. I thank you for your interest in The Gift of Warmth Bangladesh. Please help us with a donation of any amount and please tell your friends and family about The Gift of Warmth Bangladesh.
Sincerely, Jeanie Donelson, Co-founder
Bangladesh has the highest population density among large countries, 1,237.51 persons per square kilometer,
25-30 % of the national population is illiterate. The illiteracy rate is higher in rural areas and among older generations.
In 2016, 31.5% of the national population of Bangladesh live below the national poverty line – or $1.90 per day. Poverty levels are increasing in the Chittagong Division.
Rural areas generally lack adequate services in education, health clinics, and adequate roads. Rural areas are generally underserved by charitable organizations.
