Heavy monsoon rains have burst the banks of several major rivers in Bangladesh. Flooding has displaced thousands and affected millions. Animators and leaders with The Hunger Project-Bangladesh have leapt into action and are lending a hand to those in need.
On April 28, nearly 7,000 women and men gathered in Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh, for a Mass Assembly in support of the newly proposed National Women’s Development Policy.
