Rescue Centre an introduction
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 one-acre donated site (Land Size Depth – 215 Feet, Width – 71 Feet located in Sylhet – Bangladesh)
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.

Rescue an Orphan (Inspired by Shazeda Begum)
Every child deserves a safe and loving home
• Emergency orphans shelter
• Long term family placement
• Livelihood programme
• Marriage fund
Rescue an orphan sponsorship programmes operates within the greater Sylhet region to support young children orphaned by death of one or both parents. Rescue an orphan sponsorship includes livelihood programmes designed to teach practical skills like how to raise livestock, sew, irrigate the land, education and farm crops. Orphans will learn how to support themselves and generate their own income, equipping them with the practical knowledge and trade skills that are essential for their survival in later life.

Rescue an Elderly – Love, food, clothes and medicine
Old but not forgotten - While investing in the youth is a priority, the elderly should not be forgotten.
• Sponsor an elderly - Who have no children or family support
• Support with love, food, clothes, medicine
• Learn from their wisdom, life skills
If a person reaches old age and has no children or family to take care of them it can be a daunting and uncomfortable experience. Compassionate elderly care is a right. Older people play a vital role in society and deserve our attention and care. According to estimates, by the year 2050 there will be more people over the age of 60 than children under the age of 15 living on our planet– 80% of them in developing countries. 80% of the world's population is not sufficiently protected in old age against health, disability, income risks and poverty.
