CAFOD partners rush aid to Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh

Rohingya Muslims and Our Immediate Responsibilities

Emine, accompanied by Turkish politicians and heads of aid agencies, visited the Kutupalong refugee camp in Cox's Bazar district in southern Bangladesh recently and distributed aid while getting information from the camp authorities.

More than 400,000 Rohingyas have fled the country over the past three weeks after violence escalated in late August when the country's military retaliated to Rohingya rebels' attack on a military base.

Earlier on Thursday, the European Parliament passed a resolution calling on the "military and security forces in Myanmar to immediately cease the killings, harassment, and rape of the Rohingya people, and the burning of their homes".

International Desk - Chief Minister of Indian State of West Bengal Mamata Bannerjee has said her government would be with the Rohingya people who fled violence in Myanmar's Rakhine state. A total of 8,500 temporary toilets will be built and 14 "makeshift warehouses" will be set up near the shelters.

He said the Centre had taken such a stand when intellectuals of the country and social workers had appealed United Nations to provide humanitarian aid to Rohingya Muslims and also "initiate steps for immediate halt to genocide in Myanmar".

The Rohingya were still flooding into Bangladesh through various border points.

Children below five years will be administered polio vaccines while kids from six months to five years will be provided vitamin A capsules, the surgeon said.

The current humanitarian crisis began following an August 25 attack by the insurgent Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) on police and military posts in the northwestern state of Rakhine that had led to a violent offensive by the Myanmar Army.

According to the United Nations, more than half of the refugees are children, and more than 1,100 have arrived alone after trekking mud roads and hills for days. Food, clean water and sanitation, and medical and health services are urgently needed.

More than 430 people have been killed, a lot of them insurgents, and about 30,000 non-Muslim villagers have been displaced, the government said.

"They should stay in the designated camps until they return to their country", Sahely Ferdous, a police spokeswoman, said in a statement.
