The purpose of the Rescue Centre is to create a safe area to receive targeted help and support for orphan’s, the disabled, lonely elderly, the poor and those most in need.
The first generation of the British Bangladeshi community from Sylhet are rapidly disappearing due to return migration and natural causes. Established in 2014, Sylhet Aid’s overarching motivation is to preserve the positive legacies of our parents. Our aim is to continue the good work of our elders by providing aid and long-term support to the poorest and those most in need.
