Disaster Management Watch (DM WATCH), a Bangladeshi research and training firm based in Dhaka, is going to celebrate its 8th anniversary on Thursday (April 15, 2021).
As every year, the firm plans to organise various events on the occasion of its founding anniversary.
But in response to the current unforeseeable COVID-19 pandemic crisis, the events will be organised virtually.
However, as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR), the firm has initiated financial assistance on the occasion for the poor and destitute struggling to have bread and butter due to the ongoing lockdown.
Online activities include creating a photo frame with the company's eighth-year celebration logo on Facebook; making documentaries for promotion through various social media; sending gifts, e-brochures and e-greeting cards to greet different institutions of Government of Bangladesh, UN agencies, various national and international nongovernmental organisations, donor agencies and the mass media.
Bayazid Hasan, Managing Partner of DM WATCH, greeted and wished relevant stakeholders on this auspicious occasion of the organization.
"My heartiest greetings and wishes to everyone on the 8th founding anniversary of DM WATCH. Greetings of Bangla Noboborsho-1428 as well. DM WATCH steps to a new year at the time when the whole world, including Bangladesh, is combatting the pandemic," he said.
He hoped, from the aspects of social responsibility, the organisation will continue its research affiliation and contribute to the society immensely. "But my foremost prayers and wishes would be, may we again live in a healthy and livable society and nature earth."
The firm has been working on different development issues with various partners from both the public and private sectors since 2013 and since then it has been striving for excellence in research and consultancy services and has been moving upward successfully.
Within this short period of time, DM WATCH has gained a special reputation for its excellence in research and promote encouragement to young researchers, and created a unique position for itself due to its diversity and quality of research.
Other Partner of the organization Salma Akhter with her greetings and wishes has said DM WATCH is out and out committed to contribute to the development sectors of Bangladesh through its diversified research excellence.
