WaterAid’s statement on the passing of Her Majesty The Queen

9 September 2022

WaterAid Bangladesh is grieving the loss of Her Majesty The Queen. The Cabinet Division of the Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh declared three-days of state mourning for the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, from 9-to-11 September 2022. The national flag will fly at half-mast atop offices of all government, semi-government, autonomous, educational institutions, and Bangladeshi missions abroad.

Tim Wainwright, Chief Executive of WaterAid UK, said:

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Her Majesty The Queen. Her remarkable 70-year reign was defined by a deep-rooted sense of duty and service, both to those in the United Kingdom and across the Commonwealth. Her life saw much change in the world around her, but her unabated commitment, energy and interest in people’s lives has been an inspiration and example to us all. Our thoughts are with our President, His Majesty The King, and the Royal Family at this sad time.
