在孟加拉，一位名叫Nafisa Anjum Khan的無名英雄默默在前線分送物資，幫助2300多個家庭對抗疫情衝擊。
Nafisa Anjum Khan is providing relief to 2,300 families at the forefront of the fight against the coronavirus in Bangladesh.
She is working 24 hours a day. “I often cannot sleep because I worry about whether there are enough supplies to support all these families and if they can be delivered on time.”
A barrage of phone calls and messages inundate her throughout the day as she buys & packages groceries, and picks up supplies from donors.
This initiative was established with her own money, but as demand grew stronger, many of her former colleagues and friends have assisted with finances.
She does not accept cash contributions directly and instead requests for food donations. Her channel of supplies can offer immediate relief to those in need.
Before the pandemic swept through, Nafisa was committed to the school she runs for underprivileged children, offering education free of cost.
Initially, Nafisa helped the families of the 800 children at her school. Then, her initiative snowballed into what she is doing today. Overwhelmed with orders, Nafisa had to maximize her efforts by reducing transportation time.
She found that the school’s CNG rickshaw was not being used and started making more efficient deliveries on her own.
“God willing, if the coronavirus is defeated from Bangladesh and around the world”, she said. Though exhausted, she hopes to stand by her people in the future crises to come.
