Rice Programme

Bangladesh is a country affected by natural disasters, over population and amongst the worse poverty stricken countries in the world.

“In 2016 the average salary in Bangladesh for employed people was £54, that’s less than £2 per day.” – Forbes

To put this into perspective a kilo of onions cost £1, sugar at 70p and potatoes at a £1. So you can see from these examples of daily necessities, how hard their daily struggle is to feed themselves really is.

In February 2020 the world was hit with the Covid-19 Corona virus which crippled the world’s economies. This epidemic devastated our lives and suddenly we were forced to appreciate everything that we had once taken for granted. For the families and communities we help, this is a reality.

So what are we doing?

Our rice programme currently provides weekly rice packages for 250 families from the poorest communities in Bangladesh. Each family is given an ID and added to a register where their situation can be monitored and managed accordingly.

Our ground-based team distribute rice packages every week.

Since 1997 we have distributed 2000 tonnes of rice.

So what can you do?

By donating £5 per month, you can feed a family for a month, yes for a whole month. With your support we can include another family. You’ll be giving them some hope that yes, somebody is caring for them.

There are so many communities we have yet to reach and we know with your support that one day we’ll reach them all.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows DH Foundation to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to DH Foundation we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like DH Foundation to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that DH Foundation will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When DH Foundation receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
