German clothing discounter
KiK recently donated towards the purchase of Covid-19 vaccines for garment
workers in Bangladesh.

The donation was made through
the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), which
will be forwarded to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, BGMEA said in a
press statement on Tuesday.

The donation is part of KiK’s
social responsibility program as a long-standing partner of the garment
industry in Bangladesh. Besides sourcing garments in Bangladesh, KiK has been
involved with social projects here in Bangladesh for many years and has
established several charitable organizations like schools and medical stations.

Faruque Hassan, President, BGMEA said that, the garment industry serves as the most important
pillar of the Bangladesh economy and that the sector has suffered tremendously
from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and continues to do so to this day.

He added that, to protect the
entire economy of the country, it is crucial that workers and employees in this
industry can be offered a vaccine. Earlier in July, Bangladesh launched a
vaccination programme for its RMG workers.
