A very traditional youth organization in Chattogram metropolitan city is Christian Students’ Organization (CSO). In the recent past, a local wing of the International Movement of Catholic Students (IMCS) namely Bangladesh Catholic Students’ Movement (BCSM) was formed. Both the youth groups jointly took the humanitarian initiative to assist the Covid-19 lockdown affected people at the metropolitan city of Chattogram. In the first phase, the youth group assisted 68 families and later another 13 families were assisted. The distribution was done on the 3rd of May 2020.
President of CSO Mr. Calvin Gonsalves said, “We could assist the people in need because of the generous collaboration of the affluent members in the society. Due to the lockdown, only 20 youth were able to be involved in the assistance program. If we can manage, we have a wish to assist further families if the lockdown lingers for a long time”
Coordinator of BCSM Chattogram Mr. Flabian D’Costa said, “We saw that many people are in need of assistance. We also saw that some people are ready to assist. We just created the bridge by connecting them during this humanitarian crisis.”
