JAAGO Foundation, in collaboration with Urmi Group, has launched the COVID-19 vaccination awareness campaign named “Shurukkhatei Rokkha” which will run for 8 days. This initiative aims to bring the underprivileged community under the Government COVID-19 Vaccination program, supported by Volunteer for Bangladesh.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Urmi Group & JAAGO Foundation have been working on several campaigns that include providing food and masks to thousands of families in crisis. Recently, the Bangladesh government has launched a countrywide Covid-19 vaccination campaign. Urmi group and JAAGO Foundation came forward with “Shurukkhatei Rokkha”, an awareness campaign to make the vaccination program a success. To achieve that, our volunteers are going door to door and helping underprivileged people who are mostly inaccessible to technology age above 40 years.
Mizanur Rahman, a resident of Agargaon slum, was extremely grateful to the volunteers. “I could not register for the vaccination before. It only took a few minutes with their help”, he said.
Ayesha Begum of Pirojpur district expressed her happiness, “Neither I nor anyone in the family knew about the process of registration for the vaccine. The volunteers have done the whole process of registration so easily, and I feel relieved now.”
Korvi Rakshand, the Founder and Executive Director of JAAGO Foundation, said, “Many people from the underprivileged community face challenges in signing up through the website, getting their cards printed, etc. Taking these challenges into account, We have launched a campaign, “Shurokkhatei Rokkha”, to help people get vaccinated in every district across the country. Our young volunteers are highly committed and eager to help.”
Fahmida Mahfuz, Director of Urmi Group, expressed, “We are delighted to be able to come forward with the help of the people of the country. We aim to make our government’s vaccine program a success and deliver the Covid-19 vaccine to all who need our help. I hope our efforts will be fruitful.”
We must stay alert in periods of a pandemic and get vaccinated. Therefore, JAAGO Foundation, Urmi Group, and Volunteer for Bangladesh drawg people’s attention to this campaign encourage disadvantaged people to get vaccinated in their fight against COVID-19.
