Low-income people across the country struggle to survive as they remained without any work following the restrictive measures taken to tackle the coronavirus. YPSA has taken an initiative to provide food assistance to those who used to survive on their daily-basis income but currently have no income due to coronavirus situation. With the financial support of YPSA, Nirapad Sarak Chai (We Demand Safe Road) distributed food among the low-income people at Kawkhali Upazila under Rangamati district on 31 March. A total of 48 families received food. The food includes rice, pulse, oil, potato, coarse flour and soap for hand wash.

Officer-in-charge of Kawkhali Police Station Mohammed Shahidul Islam inaugurated the food distribution program.
Keeping in mind the issue of social distance, the program was inaugurated by handing out relief items to 5/6 people. Later, the food items are delivered to their house.

Upazila BRDB Chairman Belal Uddin, YPSA official Bikash Khisha, NISCHA Member Secretary Md. Monir Hossain and other members of NISCHA were present at the program.
