In this unprecedented difficult time, Nestlé Bangladesh Limited stands by the distressed people and donated nutritious Nestlé food products worth 10 million BDT to Prime Minister’s Relief and Welfare Fund, Gazipur Deputy Commissioner, a credible local NGO Sajida Foundation, Foreign Investors’ Chamber of Commerce and Industry and 1000 distressed families in Sreepur in response to COVID-19 pandemic.
“Nestlé has always been a part of the society from its inception in this country and today once again, the entire team has come forward by being a contributor for helping the distressed in this critical COVID-19 situation. In this national crisis, we pledge to stand by the country by helping the people in need. Staff contribution reflects our core value and just fraction of our commitment to the society. By doing this, we are doing our part of returning to the society, paying it forward for many to come along and we are proud to be doing the best we can”, says Deepal Abeywickrema, the Managing Director of Nestlé.
The employees voluntarily joined hands together with the organization contributing a part of their salary to support the communities in response to COVID-19 situation. The organization has matched the contribution of the employees equally and collaborated to support the community. With the number of Corona infected patients increasing day by day and with weeks of lockdown, it was important to address the distressed people’s challenge of meeting the need of daily foods.
Nestlé Bangladesh Limited is also among few organizations to continue its operations on a pragmatic scale to ensure availability of essential food in the country for its consumers to support humanity.
