A burden too heavy

Dhaka, Bangladesh, 2012


She is only sixteen

Isn’t it too early for her?

Isn’t it too heavy for her?


Sixteen years old Salma and her 2 months old son Imran Khan, came to icddr,b as her new born child was suffering from pneumonia. Imran Khan was a premature baby.


Each year, icddr,b treats more than 110,000 patients, 35,000 of whom would die without treatment. Icddr,b treat these people just for free. ICDDR,B depends on donations to continue this lifesaving treatment. We depend on you to be able to continue saving lives.


Every dollar, pound, euro and taka makes a difference to the health of poor people in Bangladesh and around the world. Whatever you decide to donate, all contributions to ICDDR,B are significant.


It’s your generosity that enables icddr,b to create lasting change in the lives of thousands of people around the world and Bangladesh through their long-term development and research work carried out from our Centre here in Bangladesh.


icddr,b greatly appreciate your support. Help icddr,b in saving millions of lives.
