Summit Group donates Tk 30m to fight coronavirus pandemic

Summit Group, Bangladesh’s largest infrastructure conglomerate has contributed BDT 30 million to the Prime Minister's Relief and Welfare Fund to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

The Principal Secretary to the PM Dr Ahmad Kaikaus received the cheque on behalf of her office. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina thanked the organisations and individuals that donated to her relief and welfare fund since Bangladesh has a substantial population of day-labourers and daily wage earners who depend on daily income for their survival.

Meanwhile, during this coronavirus crisis Summit Group had presented five thermal scanners for identifying people with high temperature in a crowd in the airport and Prime Minister’s Office and; expecting to give additional two thermal scanners to the government soon. The shipment for two thousand high quality protective suits and fifty thousand masks especially made for this purpose are on its way from China. Summit is also supporting SEID Trust based in Kamrangirchar, Dhaka to provide support to poor disabled children who are more vulnerable than the general population.
