Although Bangladesh has a subtropical monsoon climate, it suffers from cold temperatures in December and January. The average temperature can drop to single digits during this time. Those worst affected are the poor. Keeping this in mind, Elite Group undertakes a massive blanket distribution program every year. In 2016, it went into some of the poorest districts in the country and distributed over 5,000 blankets. Districts visited include Pabna, Jamalpur, Kushtia, Madaripur, Natore, Gaibandha, Lalmonir and Rangpur. In order to ensure accountability and transparency, the group worked with international and local NGOs, ActionAid, CARE Bangladesh, PKSS and Setu.
