After distributions overseen by the Bangladesh office continuing in phases in late January and throughout February 2018, Al-Imdaad Foundation dispatched a team from South Africa to oversee the final phase of distributions to close the project. The team was made up of representatives from Al-Imdaad Foundation’s provincial offices who had been directly involved in the project. Up to 4000 items were distributed at the Kutupalong camp in two distribution areas as part of the programme.
