Epyllion Group, a leading business house in Knitwears and Garments sector of the country, has distributed security and safety kits among the sports journalists from all media houses in the capital on Saturday.
The Epyllion Foundation, a concern of the business house, decided to support the sports journalists to help them discharge their duties safely during outbreak of deadly Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the country and elsewhere in the world.
Addressing a function on the occasion, the owner of Epyllion Group Riazuddin Al Mamoon, a former director of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), said he is associated with sports for long time.
“I have always treated sports journalists as my family members, so it is my duty to stand behind them in this crucial situation arising from Coronavirus,” he said.
Earlier, Epyllion Foundation also provided safety kits to the city hospitals to support Coronavirus victims.
