The country was hit by extreme cold wave in last season; people in the northern part of the country were hit by the hardest, causing loss of many lives including young children and senior citizens. Orion promptly took an initiative to distribute blankets in ten districts (Rajshahi, Bogra, Panchagarh, Gaibandha, Kurigram, Lalmonirhut, Nilfamari, Thakurgaon, Dinjpur) with 5,000 blankets including Dhaka as well. The blankets were also distributed to the ailing patients of different hospitals of North Bengal. Renowned Doctors, members of the Upazila and Union Disaster Management Committees, Upazila and Union Development Committees, Union Parishad members and local elites were also attended during the blanket distribution ceremonies in addition to head officials and regional managers of Orion Pharma Ltd.
