BritBanglaCovid's campaign Meeting - Vaccinate Undocumented

BritBanglaCovid's final campaign Meeting - Vaccinate All!

EventBrite registration to this meeting is a must and click: here

As part of a wider campaign to eradicate Covid-19 virus in Britain, we need to find a way to vaccinate undocumented migrants. The next BritBanglaCovid public meeting is on 28 March at 3pm. This event is about understanding the actual workings of the NHS as a pillar of the state and how different aspects of this pillar work so we can understand why undocumented migrants do not need to fear to register with their local GP.

From the perspective of BritBanglaCovid, there are a number of reasons for individuals without papers not registering with their local GP to get Covid-19 vaccines: including the fear of deportation, the fear of taking it, the health complications after taking it and the financial cost.

To encourage such a community BritBanglaCovid has invited:

- Abdi Hassan Founder of Coffee Afrique

- Rachel Blake - Deputy Mayor of Tower Hamlets - Cabinet Member for Adults and Health

- Sunitha Dwarakanath - Project Coordinator of Regularise (migrant group)

- Shaykh Mohammed Mahmoud, Senior Imam, East London Mosque

- Natasha Howard - Manager of Community & Mental Health - NHS

- Nurur Chowdhury, Senior Medical Scientist, Critical Care Unit - Barts NHS

- Naseem Talukdar - Founder of Feed the Homeless

We also need to find a way to reach out to the community to encourage them to register.

Bangla Britain Covid Report Launched 2020

BritBanglaCovid has created this report to analyse the plight of  Bangladeshis living in Britain. This community has experienced tragedies and unique difficulties due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the likes of which are unprecedented within current living generations.   BritBanglCovid believes that this community needs protection by providing sufficient support and resources in its culture and language to prevent further isolation. Having explored the community through individual anecdotes via interviews and a survey, BritBanglaCovid was able to produce this report to protect the wellbeing of Bangladeshis in Britain. RECOMMENDATIONS: 1. Faster intervention by authorities in the language affected by minority communities to save lives.  2. Investment by authorities on specific language programmes to support vulnerable and excluded communities (beyond written word) such as use of spoken word voice recordings, telephone and face to face conversations because many Bangladeshis have no formal

Maium remembers Bangladesh being overcrowded as a child. His initial experience of the UK was completely the opposite.  ‘Everything was different. It was beautiful and nice. It was very different from the country I was born in. Obviously, I was very young at the time. In Bangladesh, I was use to being with Bangladeshi people. When I came here I see a different variety of people.’ Maium came to the UK in 1984. He was 5 years old.
