Primark to pay compensation to victims of factory disaster

Primark will pay out compensation to victims of the Bangladesh factory collapse who worked for its supplier.

It will include long-term aid for children who have lost their parents, financial aid for those injured and payments to the families of the deceased.

The value retailer also noted that its supplier shared the building with other retailers, whom it has urged to follow its example and offer assistance.

Primark’s local team in Bangladesh began working to put this initiative in place as soon as the extent of the disaster became clear. It has partnered with a local NGO to address the immediate need of victims, including providing emergency food aid.

In a statement, the retailer said: “We shall be reviewing our commitments constantly to ensure that they meet the needs of the victims as the tragedy continues to unfold.”
