A total of 694 families of distressed trafficking survivors received foods and household items under the ‘Ashshash’ project by Winrock International in Bangladesh this week.

The aid was provided by PRAN-RFL Group to the ‘Ashshash’ project as the group inked a deal with Winrock that supports trafficking survivors, according to a press release, issued on Thursday.

Pran-RFL has undertaken this initiative under ‘Pashe Asi Bangladesh’ programme as a part of its corporate social responsibility during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The beneficiaries of the project received a variety of essential food and household items across five key-districts of operations for the project – Khulna, Satkhira, Jashore, Chattogram and Cox’s Bazar.

The ‘Ashshash’ project aims to eventually eradicate all circumstances relating to human trafficking in Bangladesh by setting an inaugural goal to enroll 4,500 men and women under its counselling and training processes, whilst engaging 250,000 individuals from various community-levels via awareness-raising activities.

The project is supported by Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
