ACTNews, COX’S BAZAR — Aksi Cepat Tanggap conveyed benefactors’ assistance to Rohingya fire victims in Balukhali, Cox’s Bazar. A total of 200 food packages were given to victims in camps 8, 9, and 10 on April 6-7. Assisted by eight volunteers, these packages were distributed to the survivors.

Firdaus Guritno from Global Humanity Response -ACt team explained that this assistance was the initial stage. “Insyaallah, ACT program will periodically support Rohingyas at Cox’s Bazar through food and clean water assistance,” said Firdaus.

He continued, the condition of Rohingyas in Myanmar was very apprehensive. They had no jobs to do and homes to live in. For this reason, generous help is needed to be able to meet their basic needs every day.

“Rohingya people right now really need our help. The fire tragedy last month further added to their burden as refugees in other countries. They expect a lot of help to get out of this humanitarian crisis,” said Firdaus.

The fires occurred some time ago in Rohingya refugee camps in Balukhali, Cox’s Bazar. The disaster killed 15 people and affected 80,000 people. Fires that had hit homes of Rohingyas in Bangladesh had occurred repeatedly.[]
