Care Bangladesh, with support from USAID, on Wednesday handed over constructed handwashing stations to a union health and welfare center in Mithamoin, Kishoreganj.
The handwash stations were constructed as part of Strengthening Household Ability to Respond to Development Opportunities (SHOUHARDO-III) project implemented by Care Bangladesh, said a press release.
Dr Addullah Al Safi, Upazila Health and Family Planning Officer said, “It is really great to have such support from CARE Bangladesh. On an average, 250 people visit our health complex to whom we disseminate messages on handwashing. This is a very timely initiative.”
Walter Mwasaa, Acting Country Director of CARE Bangladesh thanked USAID for its partnership and funding these critical activities and the government of Bangladesh for its supportive partnership in development.
He further requested for more support to Bangladesh in its health and economic fiscal measures geared at reducing the impact of the crisis on health and livelihoods of the people of Bangladesh.
Upazila Nirbahi Officer Prabanshu Sam Mohan, Regional Coordinator of SHOUHARDO III Program Subrata Kumar Saha was present on the occasion on behalf of CARE where at least 20 local health officials and elected representatives also spoke.
