Don’t forget the Rohingya

For decades, the international community has supported the government’s generous acceptance of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.

However, as the number of refugees around the world continues to rise, UNHCR and its partners have stressed the need to bring the Rohingya crisis to the public eye so that it does not become a forgotten crisis.

“It is therefore important to ensure continued funding and support to meet the needs of refugees and the surrounding host communities,” said Balock.

Geographically, the refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar are particularly vulnerable to natural disasters.

Accordingly, this year’s JRP highlighted the need for enhanced efforts to mitigate climate change and manage disaster risk through reforestation and energy interventions.

The unwavering support of the international community has been and will continue to be critical in providing lifesaving protection and support services for Rohingya refugees.“He said.

“Many Rohingya refugees continue to express their desire to return home when circumstances permit,” he said.

“The solution is ultimately in Myanmar.“.

Meanwhile, UNHCR and its partners are stationed in Rakhine State to support Myanmar in creating an environment for refugees to return to.

A UNHCR official stressed, “It is important to continue to expand essential humanitarian services on the island, including in the areas of health, protection, nutrition, education, livelihoods and skills-building.”
