Unilever Bangladesh employees donate their salary for Eid fundraising21 April 2023
Business Desk :
The employees of Unilever Bangladesh Limited (UBL), the country's leading Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) company, have voluntarily donated a portion of their salary to support underprivileged families to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr this year.
The donation drive was part of Unilever's employee volunteering program that allows employees to be associated with community development, sustainability projects and live their life purpose, it said in a press release. Through contribution 230 families will receive essential food items.
During the Eid season, many families struggle to buy necessary food products and miss out on the joy of the holy occasion. This year, due to rising inflation many families are facing additional challenges.
To distribute food for the underprivileged families, the UBL has partnered with two non-profit organizations, Utsho Bangladesh and Spreeha.
