Bangladesh Badminton Federation extended its helping hand to some vulnerable shuttlers and coaches, who are in need due to the coronavirus pandemic, said federation secretary Amir Hossain Bahar on Saturday. ‘We provided around Tk one lakh among the 37 recipients, including former and current national level players and coaches,’ said Bahar. Bahar also informed that some executive committee members of the federation donated for the aid and they have no further plan to continue it until the ministry of youth and sports provided a fund. The recipients got at least Tk two thousand each cash on an average, but some of them got more than that considering their vulnerability. — New Age
