A Brussels-based charity organisation has announced a 100 million euro aid for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.
Prof. Dr. Hecham, Vice President UANORG, made the announcement on behalf of the charity organisation’s President Prince Jamal Houssain Alnoaimi, during “The Plight of the Rohingya” conference in European Parliament on Tuesday, according to a statement.
“Later talking to the media Prof. Dr. Hecham disclosed that the video documentary showing the miseries of Rohingya people in Burma has melted our hearts and His Highness Prince Jamal who was also present in the conference decided to go for a real action to move forward by announcing 100 million Euro aid,” Abdul Latif, media manager UANORG, said.
Dr Hecham said that, “100 million euro is not our limit, it is the beginning step, we invite everybody to join us specially European Union, United Nations and other charity organisations and make this action as a reality to respond what we see in the eyes of the refugees who have been forced to leave their homes and lands, and are waiting for the help with the hope that they are having on us.”
Prof. Hecham said that Bangladesh government should allow UANORG to open its offices in the country so that it can work for the betterment of people.
“We would also like to offer our center and offices to other organisations so that we can directly be able to help the needy people.”
Close to a million Rohingyas have fled persecution–described as a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing” by the United Nations– in Myanmar and taken refuge in Bangladesh.
