BANGLADESH EXTENDS HER HELPING HAND
Bangladesh is donating US$ 1 million to the US Redcross as humanitarian aid for the victims of the hurricane Katrina.
Meanwhile the Bangladesh Ambassador to the United States announced at the FOBANA Conference (the largest Bangladeshi-American organization) held in Miami on Sept. 2 to come forward and extend help to the victims.
Bangladeshi blogger Imtiaz says that he would prefer to send out Bangladeshi experts on disaster management instead of monetary aid as no doubt what-so-ever that the Bangladeshi strategic knowledge on this is the best in the world. That still remains as an option if the US authorities are interested.
