AmeriCares is sending emergency shipments of critical medicines to Bangladesh in response to Cyclone Sidr, which devastated coastal towns throughout the country and has left hundreds of thousands homeless and killed more than 3,000 people.

AmeriCares emergency response manager, Jonathan Hodgdon, arrived safely in Dhaka on Monday and is meeting with our partners on the ground to assess the needs and determine any further assistance AmeriCares can provide.

Two emergency shipments, which include medicines and other relief supplies essential to treating health conditions during and after a disaster, are scheduled to arrive in Dhaka. The first is enroute from our warehouse in Stamford, CT and scheduled to arrive on Thursday with the second scheduled to arrive later in the week. Combined, the two shipments include over 40,000 pounds of essential medicines and emergency supplies including, antibiotics, analgesics, topical creams and IV solutions.
