ACTNews, COX’S BAZAR – This Ramadan is not much different for the Rohingyas at Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. They are struggling with poverty and limited life in their host country.
The condition of the Rohingyas is very sad even though they have been freed from the repressive actions of the military that threaten their lives. They lack food, access to education, and clean water.
“This Ramadan is a moment to ease the humanitarian crisis of the Rohingyas. Insha Allah, for 30 days, Aksi Cepat Tanggap is serving iftar dishes for refugees in several camps in Kutapalong, Cox’s Bazar, thanks to the support of generous benefactors,” said Firdaus Guritno from ACT’s Global Humanity Response.
Wednesday (4/28/2021) to coincide with the 15th day of Ramadan, 400 iftar packages were distributed to the Rohingyas at Camp-1 Kutopalong, Camp-5 Kutopalong, Camp-17 Thaingkhali, and Camp-9 Balukhali.
That afternoon, the Rohingyas, both children, and adults were queuing up in the field. They spread out mats and sat together neatly. In front of them were served sweet drinks, mineral waters, and main courses. When the evening call to prayer echoed, they ate the iftar meals from the generosity of the Indonesian people.
