Dear Colleagues,

700 marginalised children were rescued from the streets and slums of Dhaka. They are cared for by The Dhaka Project. Through the generosity of donors like The Emirates Airline Foundation, and Dubai donours the basic day-to-day need for health care, education,
food, clothing, shelter is being met in so many different ways. But we do need more help.

We have overseas volunteer workers like doctors, dentists, nurses, paediatricians etc who come and donate their professional services. These visits do substantively contribute to the emotional and physiological well-being of the children.

This appeal from me to you, dear colleague, is to ask for help to sustain the growing needs of the little children under our care. We need rice, dal, powdered milk, diapers these items have become very expensive to buy and are used everyday.

If each one of you could donate 1 kilo of rice or dal, or powdered milk, diapers, and bring them to Dhaka on your next trip or through other inflight colleagues, this would make a huge positive impact on the material welfare of the kids. Donated items can be left with
the crew hotel concierge and we shall pick them up.

Please donate generously. On behalf of the children at The Dhaka Project, please accept my grateful thanks.

Maria Conceicao
Founder,The Dhaka Project
