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.

She was married at the age of 19 and brought up with six siblings.    She grew up with the idea that she was to have a husband and live with her in-laws.   'I was not able to study. It was one of my dreams to be a   nurse. I was doing well at my education. It would have to come to an end and   sacrifice my ambition in order to become a wife and daughter-in-law.’ Before she was married her mother was terminally ill.     She had to give up her relationship with her only love. ‘It was like a Romeo & Juliet situation - a bit of Bollywood,' she said.  When Rubina introduced him to her mother, she felt that he seemed like a nice boy.   Her mother’s wish in the end was to

BritBanglaCovid National Survey for Bangladeshis

Covid-19 demonstrates that Bangladeshis in Britain are more vulnerable than any other ethnic minority communities. BritBanglacovid has now taken a massive task to undertake a nationwide survey to find out the underlying causes of such a tragedy upon such a minority community.  We urge anyone who is Bangladeshi to fill in the survey. No one so far has been able to target such a community on such a scale.  We hope we can obtain significant information to argue for positive changes from grassroots research. We need your help. Please complete the survey and share... powered by Typeform
