The Rohingya refugees are caught in the crossfire. Inadequate pressure on Myanmar has intended that resilient and secure environments for return do not exist, and that they will continue to live in deprivation because the government of Bangladesh refuses to have further economic integration and is limiting the important and valuable rights of the Rohingya as Bangladeshis are concerned about unemployment, increased crime and conflict, inflationary pressures, and rapid population growth.
Therefore, refugees settling in Bangladesh are unemployed and totally depends on the humanitarian assistance to survive.
Bangladesh hosts nearly 1 million Rohingya refugees in widely dispersed camps throughout Cox’s Bazar, over 700,000 among whom fled coercion and violence committed in neighbor Myanmar three years ago, and many non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have stepped up to provide humanitarian support since then.
Though Rohingya overwhelmingly say they want to return to Myanmar, have their citizenship recognized, and have access to basic services but Myanmar refuse to provide secure and promise to stop the ethnic cleansing. The situation seems likely, they have to continue to seek asylum in Bangladesh until their rights are returned by Myanmar.
Till the day come, they need our support basic living to survive and this Ramadan will be a critical month for them. We are here to call upon a help to provide Food Baskets to they refugee families in Cox’s Bazar.
