A month after the tragic explosion at the port of Beirut, Bangladesh is upping its aid for Lebanon’s capital city.
Responding to a request from Lebanon, the South Asian country just sent 3,360 kilograms (over 3 tonnes) of glassware as emergency aid.
According to the Bangladeshi newspaper Dhaka Tribune, the Lebanese government made a request through the Bangladesh Embassy in Beirut, to send glassware to recover the damages caused by the explosion.
In quick response to the blast crisis, Bangladesh was one of the many countries that supported Beirut. Bangladesh has already delivered 10 tonnes of aid including food, medical supplies.
It also rescued stranded Bangladeshi workers, after many were impacted by the explosion. Unfortunately, some even died.
