UNICEF has appealed for one hundred and fifty two million dollars to provide critical support for Rohingya refugees and host community residents in Bangladesh this year. Executive Director UNICEF Henrietta Fore told the reporters in Dhaka that UN body has only twenty-nine percent of the required funds and it is working hard to get the rest.
“To date we have only 29 percent of the required funds and we’re working hard to get the rest,” Henrietta Fore, UNICEF’s executive director, told reporters in Bangladesh’s capital Dhaka. “There is a great need for the people to feel that they are out of the crisis in the context of stability, health care, education, water, sanitation and nutrition,” she said. “Today, without a legal identity, they are at the mercy of traffickers and drug dealers,” said Ahmed Al Meraikhi, UN humanitarian envoy, speaking alongside Fore.
“We are seriously working both privately and officially in this regard, and the international community is working for justice, which is extremely important for the Rohingya,” Fore added.
