On March 7, 2020, AMCB Foundation Bangladesh distributed clothing to the rural poor and needy in Bangladesh. The Foundation conducted the distribution at its medical facility and distribution center in Bikrampur Khilgaon village in the Munshiganj district in central Bangladesh. During this event, about 110 pieces of clothing were distributed. Most of the clothing (nearly 100 pieces) were given to women in need. The remaining clothing was provided to men.
This event is part of AMCB Foundation Bangladesh’s regular distribution program in rural Bangladesh. Every few months, AMCB Foundation Bangladesh will either hold medical clinics or distribute necessary items, such as food, clothing, blankets and school supplies, to different villagers and schools in need. This event occurred before the Coronavirus outbreak began in Bangladesh, and in the near future, we will be conducting aid events to help those affected by Coronavirus. All future relief efforts will take all necessary precautions related to Coronavirus and will follow the Bangladesh Government’s Coronavirus related restrictions.
If you are interested in helping out, please donate today! Your donations will help us increase the amount and frequency of aid that we can provide in rural Bangladesh.
The AMCB Foundation is helping promote the San Antonio Food Bank's Covid-19 Response Campaign. This campaign is raising money to provide food to those affected by the Covid-19 outbreak, including children, those out of work, and the elderly. The San Antonio Food Bank plays an integral role in feeding those in need throughout San Antonio and the 16 surrounding counties. The recent Covid-19 outbreak has made their efforts more important than ever.
As part of this effort, the AMCB Foundation is fundraising on behalf of the San Antonio Food Bank. 100% of all proceeds from donations made through the AMCB Foundation's Big Give SA webpage will be given to the food bank to help fund their Covid-19 Response Campaign.
Promoting this campaign is part of the AMCB Foundation's efforts to support the mission of the San Antonio Food Bank. By promoting these efforts and volunteering regularly, the AMCB Foundation works to help the San Antonio Food Bank's mission. Please join us in supporting the efforts of the San Antonio Food Bank.

On March 6, 2020, the AMCB Foundation (through its Bangladesh entity AMCB Foundation Bangladesh), will distribute saris to about 100 poor and needy rural women in a village in Central Bangladesh. A sari is a basic piece of clothing for adult women in Bangladesh, especially in rural areas.
Distributing clothing to women is part of the AMCB Foundation’s larger goals of raising the standard of living for rural families in Bangladesh. We are working to provide basic medical care, food, clothing, blankets, school supplies, and sanitary items to the people who need it the most.

As part of its plans to increase its charitable activities in San Antonio, the AMCB Foundation is working on ways to help survivors of human trafficking. As part of this effort, the AMCB Foundation is helping publicize events designed to raise awareness about human trafficking.
The AMCB Foundation participated at the November 4, 2019 event in San Antonio on a year-long Texas state wide media campaign entitled “CAN YOU SEE ME?” The media campaign was launched in Houston on October 1, 2019. The campaign is a partnership of Texas First Lady and the Governor’s Child Sex Trafficking Team with A21 and the Outdoor Advertising Association of Texas.
The goals of this campaign are: 1) to help the public to recognize and report human trafficking; 2) let the survivors know that they are being seen, cared for, and help is available; 3) and also to let the exploiters know that they are also being seen and that justice is coming.
