Protect a Life: Cold winter causes hundreds of deaths
The 1We Blanket Campaign started off well. In Bangladesh, where the cold winters cause hundreds of deaths each year. Moreover, there are millions of people who suffer severely from the cold. In particular the people who are forced to live on the streets. By donating a 1We Blanket you directly save a life in Bangladesh!
Where the tropical temperatures in summer rise up to 45°C, they drop just as hard to below 5°C in the winter. Combined with the high humidity and the bleak wind in Bangladesh this causes an extreme cold wind chill factor; something the Bengali people, without heaters or isolated houses, are unable to withstand. Early in November, when it is still around 20°C, they already wear winter coats, scarves and hats over their ears.
When the temperature decreases more, they are really suffering. Early in the evening you smell burned tires, plastic and other waste everywhere around you. In the absence of stoves, everything they can find during the day ends up on small fires. Once burned out, the cold strikes them down seriously. That’s why most deaths occur at night.
Make the difference
By donating a 1We Blanket you will make the difference between life and death. With every blanket we are able to distribute, we save a life during the harsh winter months in Bangladesh. Moreover, the blankets are multi-functional: not only as a blanket, but also as a baby crib or carpet. The polar fleece blankets are specially designed in Bangladesh for 1We - One World Experience. From 1st December we will start to distribute the blankets.
Protect a life in Bangladesh during wintertime!
With every blanket donated, someone will have a warm winter.
