The signing ceremony was held at the Gulshan-1 headquarters of Reckitt Benckiser (Bangladesh).

Vishal Gupta said, “We are proud to partner with SAJIDA Foundation to address the critical health and hygiene needs of sanitation workers in Bangladesh. Harpic believes that hygiene and good health are human rights and not luxuries and that everyone has the right to access a safe environment and cleanliness.”

Sabrin Maruf Tinni said, “I am very happy to partner with SAJIDA Foundation. Our target is to reach last mile vulnerable people through this collaboration. We hope to contribute more in the coming days and support the people who need this more”.
