Rohingya refugees’ plead the U.N. Security Council for help
As a human being, I feel compelled to share this important report that affects directly the future of the world, also increase the humanitarian sense around the globe for all those who suffer the consequences of a political-military war.
Rohingya’s refugees in Bangladesh are one of many people around the world who continue to suffer from the civil war, the war of power.
U.N. Security Council delegation visited on Sunday, April 29 the refugee’s camp in Bangladesh with 700,000 Rohingya Muslims who have fled Myanmar to escape military-led violence.
“It’s quite overwhelming. Obviously, the scale of this camp is unlike anything I’ve ever seen,” said deputy U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Kelley Currie. “It is going to be a disaster when the rains come.”
Hundreds of thousands of refugees are living in very poor conditions inside of temporary shelters made of bamboo and tarpaulins in low-lying areas likely to be flooded during the upcoming monsoon season and also will worsen the humanitarian situation.
Rohingya refugees pleas the delegation to help them return safely to their homes in neighbouring Myanmar and for justice over the reason they fled - accusations of killings, rapes and arson.
“It shows the scale of the challenge as we try as a Security Council to find some way through that enables these poor people to go home,” British U.N. Ambassador Karen Pierce said, “The sad thing is there’s nothing we can do right today that will make their distress any less.”
The Security Council envoys after getting a firsthand look at the plight of the refugees living conditions will travel to Myanmar on Monday and meet with its de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
