On 24 April 2013, around at 08:50 am (BD Time), an eight-storied commercial building Rana Plaza, situated at Savar, Dhaka, Bangladesh, in which 5 were garments from 2nd floor to 6th floor, collapsed entirely. The incident led more than 550 garments people to death and around 2,500 to injury. Many garments workers have been rescued by cutting off their hands or legs (one or both). At present, life of those survivors of the Savar garments tragedy have come to a stop. So, to help the families of the survivors of the Savar garments tragedy, online crowd-funding Indiegogo has started to gather money.


Rana Plaza

On April 23, the day before the incident, a massive crack appeared in the walls of the second floor. On that day, Mohammed Sohel Rana, the owner of Rana Plaza, called engineer Abdur Razzak Khan to inspect the depth of that crack. Khan told to evacuate the building immediately and marked the building totally unsafe for work. For that day, all the garments owners told their employees to leave the building. But the following day (means on the collapsing day), the owners threatened to “fire” the garments people who would not go on working as usual. Though no workers were interested to go inside that cracked building, but they had to for the sake of their job. Due to extreme pressure, the cracked Rana Plaza collapsed at around 8:30 am.

There were many garments workers at Rana Plaza who were the sole earners of his/her family. Many sole earners died instantly due to collapse. Many people died inside the wreckage because of getting late rescue. Many garments workers survived without any hurt, but unfortunately there were some people too who were brought back outside by cutting off their hands or legs. Now it’s time to face the truth and the truth is all of the victims and their families are very poor. And these families specially those who lost the sole earning person now need financial help to buy food as well as run their family.

Rana Plaza is considered the deadliest building collapse as well as garment-factory accident in the history of Bangladesh. This incident has stirred the whole world. Many organizations from different countries of the world are coming forward to stand beside these people. Online crowd-funding platforms are not far behind. Indiegogo, an online crowd-funding platform is gathering money to help the survivors of the Savar garments tragedy.

Indiegogo has a target of collecting $10,000 by 11:59 p.m. PT of 25 Jun. As of writing, the crowd-funding platform has collected $2,314 from 42 funders. Every penny generated from this campaign will go to a reputable relief organization that is working with the survivors and the families of the victims for their rehabilitation.
