A memorial of development and management of projects initiated by Nishwa Shahayak Shangstha (NSS) Bangladesh.
Relief distributions were targeted to people affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Six villages in Kulaura Upazilla, Moulvibazar, and three slums in Sylhet City Corporation. A total of 375 families received relief from NSS Bangladesh.
Avoidable blindness is a major problem within the underprivileged community in Bangladesh. The two main reasons for the problem are economic hardship and lack of access to modern facilities. Considering the peril of these helpless people, NSS has been undertaking an eye camp project for the past half a decade and has provided treatment and surgeries to around two thousand people to date. In this year we have screened over 500 people and provided lenses to over 150 people through cataract surgeries .
- Although Bangladesh stepped up as a middle-income country recently, its healthcare system hasn’t been up to the mark. The main reason being poor budget allocation and insufficient facilities at the grassroots level such as Upazilla and union. As a result, various NGO’s and private institutions have been contributing to support these vulnerable groups which also acts as a helping hand to the government. Since the beginning of NSS, we have carried out over 40 free medical camps at various slums and villages across the Sylhet division. Over the course, 9500-10000 patients were examined by qualified doctors. The treatments and the medicines were provided free of cost.
- A total of 360 patients were treated in 2020.
Sanitary Latrine Distribution
During the period. NSS distributed as many as 40 sets of sanitary latrines to 40 families of Baday Dewli village under Fenchuganj Upazila of Sylhet District. Each Latrine set comprises five rings and one slab with siphoned. About 250 inmates come under hygiene and eventually get rid of water-bound diseases.
Tube well Distribition
In 2020, NSS established 20 shallow Tube wells in Kulaura Upazilla. As a result, the families who so long deprived of pure drinking water now accord access to it.
Mid day meal
Primary school students in the rural village are ill-nourished resulted drop-out is alarming. Considering the facts, govt. of Bangladesh as well as NGOs working in this area are active. Like other NGOs, NSS, since 2014 has been taking the initiative to provide mid-day meals to as many as 400 primary students in four rural schools. NSS provides mid-day meals twice a week.
