Direct Fresh donates for Leprosy Patients

The Zonta Club of Greater Dhaka had their Annual Meeting on Tuesday, May 13 at Soi 71 in Gulshan 2. Direct Fresh, represented by Director of Operations Eddie Bearnot, presented BDT 100,000 to Zonta Club of Greater Dhaka President Dr. Zareen Delwar Mahbub so that Zonta may continue its work providing sewing machines and training to Leprosy Patients in Dhaka.

Zonta, a well-respected global charity committed to the protection and empowerment of women and children, is committed to creating change though its initiatives, both in Bangladesh and world wide. Similarly, Direct Fresh is committed to to disrupting the status quo in Bangladesh by insisting on the highest quality product for our customers.

Direct Fresh is committed to giving back, both through donations to organizations like Zonta and our own initiatives, like providing our partner farmers with a larger share of the profits and delivering groceries in bags stitched by survivors of the Rana Plaza tragedy.
