Rohingyas Crisis, fundraising is difficult

Half of the money that the UN had initially sought for assisting three lakh refugees, but still has not been raised, but the number of Rohingyas refugees already in Bangladesh is going to be doubled.

Officials at the United Nations Office of the United Nations say that the idea that they originally planned to support Rohingya on the basis of the concept, the situation has become much more complex than that.

On September 7, the United Nations said that coordinating relief efforts for nearly 3,000 Rohingyas fleeing Myanmar until that time required at least 7.7 million dollars in primary form.

Of this, it has been possible to raise up to 3 million 64 thousand dollars till September 29, which is 47 percent of the initial plan.

But in the meantime, the number of refugees with new Rohingyas has increased by five million and accordingly, the demand has increased.

The United Nations has asked to review the relief plan in collaboration with associate organizations to meet the demand for this huge emergency assistance.

Meanwhile, United Nations Humanitarian Assistance Department chief and emergency relief coordinator Mark Lokak and UNICEF executive director Anthony Lake are coming to Bangladesh on Monday. On their two-day visit, they will go to the refugee camp and see the situation and the level of crisis in Rohingya.

Press Conference in Dhaka

United Nations Resident Coordinator Robert Watkinson will be attending a press conference in Dhaka on Monday.

The number of Rohingya victims of Myanmar oppression took place in Bangladesh, but the number of refugees in this region has been the biggest refugee crisis since the last decade.

The International Migration Agency-IOM and their partner organizations say that they are struggling to make adequate drinking water for a large number of refugees who are taking shelter in Cox’s Bazar.

There is still no shelter for hundreds of thousands of Rohingya people, they are living under the open sky. It has also become difficult for relief workers to provide food, medical and emergency assistance.

Everyday rain is accumulating in the Rohingyas camps. The water is using many refugees, causing chronic diseases like cholera to spread, IOM is scared.

The Inter-Sector Coordination Group (ISG), which is coordinating among the agencies for the assistance of Rohingyas, has said that to meet the basic needs of Rohingyas who have come in the past five weeks, it needs at least 5.9 million liters of safe drinking water and 18,000 latrines per day.

But aid agencies have managed to provide well-water water and sanitation for 1,41,000 refugees.
