Lafarge will donate 500t of cement in aid of the victims of Neemtoli fire in Old Dhaka, reports UNB.

The pledge came when a delegation led by Lafarge Group Co-president of Cement Division of France Isidoro Miranda called on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) Thursday morning.

During the meeting they discussed different issues of trade and business.

Sheikh Hasina thanked the Lafarge Group for standing by people who lost their family members and property in the devastating fire that killed over hundred people on June 3.

Several buildings were gutted in the fire leaving many families homeless.
She said the aim of her government is to ensure wellbeing of the people and has been implementing several programmes.
