Humanitarian activities of IUB Green Planet Club during COVID-19 pandemic
Green Planet Club (GPC) at IUB, under the guidance of the Dean of the School of Environmental Science and Management (SESM), successfully organized its COVID-19 awareness campaign at Procheshta Foundation School recently. The goal of this campaign was to raise awareness regarding Coronavirus among the group of underprivileged children who themselves and/or their families are most vulnerable to this epidemic that has gripped our world currently.
The campaign started with a message from the Dean of SESM, followed by a general introduction to the disease COVID-19 and the myths associated with it. Students were then explained how this virus had come into being and what are the ways it is spreading among us humans. The club representatives then presented various methods of prevention of risk catching this disease, along with a detailed video instruction on proper hand washing practice. An interactive game was then played with the groups of students to evaluate how well they would ensure their own safety and the safety of their families in the case of possible exposure to COVID-19. Each student was then gifted with a bag which contained Coronavirus risk prevention instructional charts, soaps, hand sanitizers, tissues, masks, stationaries and chocolates. Club Coordinator, Mr. Ekhtekharul Islam concluded the campaign by thanking everyone for their cooperation.
