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.
Check back after March 6 for photos and more information about our event!

January 11 is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. As part of this initiative to raise awareness, people were asked to share pictures of them wearing blue clothing on social media along with the hashtag "WearBlueDay."

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.

Right now, we are working on our next major donation to refuges in Greater San Antonio. We are gathering used clothing, and will be making a donation directly to organizations that provide aid to local refugees.
