The Aga Khan National Council for Bangladesh, under the Ismaili CIVIC umbrella, partnered up with Mission Save Bangladesh, an initiative launched by Sheba.xyz, to provide emergency support to underprivileged communities.
In keeping with its longstanding tradition of helping those in need, on July 30, Ismaili CIVIC has donated to Mission Save Bangladesh to support underprivileged people affected by the Covid-19 pandemic during the upcoming Eid-ul-Adha.
Mission Save Bangladesh will be distributing meat, rice and vegetables to those most in need.
"Members of the Ismaili community in Bangladesh were provided with an opportunity to contribute to this worthwhile cause, as we unite in our efforts to fulfil our civic responsibility to our community," a press release from the organisation says.
Ismaili CIVIC is a global initiative under which Ismaili Muslim communities internationally unite around a common mission to serve humanity, by rendering voluntary service to improve the quality of life of the communities in which they live.
This service reflects the community's ethic of civic engagement and good citizenship, exemplifying Islam's core values of service, peace, compassion and care for the vulnerable.
