Pure drinking water facility is provided at all the camps. Apart from this, mobile charging facility is also available as people are unable to charge their phones due to power cuts at various places. In addition, to keep the emergency transactions of the water-logged people running, temporary bKash agent points have been set up at all the health camps. Already, a wide number of customers in the flood affected areas have availed this service.
bKash, as a socially responsible organization, always stands by the people of this country in any disaster. In continuation of this, the organization is conducting these free health camps.
