ACTNews, COX’S BAZAR – Two weeks ahead of Ramadan, Rohingyas in Cox’s Bazar were afflicted with a huge fire accident that devoured thousands of their camps. Fifteen fatalities occurred, leaving deep sorrow for the Rohingyas.
Aksi Cepat Tanggap, supported by Indonesian Benefactors, continues to give the best assistance, especially in early Ramadan. One hundred iftar meals were distributed to the refugees in refugee camps, which were camp 1 and 5 in Kutupalong, camp 17 Thai Khali, and camp 9 Balukhali, Wednesday (04/13/2021).
Firdaus Guritno from Global Humanity Response-ACT explained, the iftar packages were distributed in turns to support the Rohingyas in refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar. Until the end of Ramadan, ACT will distribute iftar meals to 12,000 beneficiaries in Cox’s Bazar.
“Hopefully, the assistance from Indonesian Benefactors can lighten up the sorrow in this early Ramadan. Losing their homes and family members a moment before Ramadan must be deeply saddening to the Rohingyas,” said Firdaus.
Firdaus added, as of now, ACT is campaigning for the construction of new shelters for the Rohingyas in Bangladesh. A lot of support is needed for this project. Therefore, ACT encourages Indonesian benefactors to continue supporting our Rohingya brothers and sisters.
