In Germany, the corona pandemic may be largely over - in Bangladesh it is only just beginning. Thanks to our local sponsorship we can pass on your donations directly. See for yourself...

AGAPE Bangladesh was able to use the donations from Germany to equip a hospital with masks and other urgently needed hygiene items. Respiratory masks and food were also distributed to the suffering population. Many thanks to the generous donors!

 

Corona affects us all - directly or indirectly.

 

AGAPE e.V. is also active in Germany. We would also like to make a contribution for you in these times - therefore some of our members sew respirators on request.

 

For further details / contact please press :

The annual general meeting of the members is cancelled. We will inform members and sponsors about a new date in written form.

We also try to bring fast help to Bangladesh. Corona endangers the existence of the people and leaves behind poverty and hunger. Please help us to support these people.

Please stay healthy!

At the Sholop, Boalia and Dadpur sites, existing deep wells of AGAPE e.V. or of the school were fitted with pipes. This enabled the area of water supply to be considerably increased.

In 2019 AGAPE e.V. drilled another deep well at the market place in Goaljani. From 2020, this well will supply a nearby small hospital with drinking water.

Here you can find out what AGAPE is committed to, about current projects and the history of the association.

Many wells in Bangladesh supply water that is not suitable for drinking. It contains harmful amounts of arsenic but also manganese and phosphate. Originally, people drank from the surface waters, which, however, are highly microbially contaminated. In order to provide people with clean drinking water, AGAPE 2015 installed SIDKO filters at central locations such as market places (Maulvi Bazaar, Lahiri Mohonpur Bazaar), hospitals (Ullapara), schools and train stations (Sholop), through which the arsenic is removed by adsorption.
Some of the 2015 installed SIDKO filters require urgent maintenance.

According to the WHO and research, the arsenic-contaminated groundwater in Bangladesh is "the greatest mass poisoning in history".

AGAPE e.V. aims to provide all children with equal access to education and at least one hot meal a day.

At the villages Sholop, Boalia and Dadpur, existing deep wells drilled by AGAPE e.V. or other well owners were fitted with pipelines. This has considerably improved the efficiency of the water supply. At the locations, 4 schools with a total of more than 1,000 pupils as well as several markets and restaurants are now supplied with running and clean water. This significantly improves the hygiene and health of the people. Visible results can be achieved with little effort.

A yoghurt factory now has running water. The hygienic conditions have visibly improved.
