Rem bint Ibrahim Al Hashemy is appealing to the international community to help end the problem.
The UAE has renewed its commitment to the international community to reduce the suffering of refugees and to maintain their human dignity amid the growing challenges they face.
Rem bint Ibrahim Al Hashemy, Minister for International Cooperation, confirmed at a conference on Rohingya refugee donors, sponsored by the United States of America, the European Union, the United Kingdom, and the United Nations, that the UAE had taken action. Rohingya refugees have since embarked on the crisis by funding international consultation efforts and response programs.
The minister explained that UAE officials did not hesitate to visit Cox’s Bazar temple in Bangladesh to learn about humanitarian projects and show support for Bangladesh, as the country has gripped the growing number of Rohingya refugees fleeing persecution in their home country. They also discussed ways to address the root causes of the problem, which is affecting the Islamic world, where, unfortunately, many human tragedies are concentrated.
He cited the need to find a solution to this problem and other humanitarian issues, as the Covid-19 epidemic has exacerbated the suffering of refugees and displaced people everywhere – and created new economic reality in many countries. UAE assistance to Rohingya refugees has covered many important areas such as supporting women and children as vulnerable people and focusing on areas such as food, nutrition, health, education, and sanitation. In addition, many projects have been undertaken at Cox’s Bazar Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh.
Last year, the UAE launched a national fundraising campaign to support Rohingya women and children, in which 20 charities, charities and charities in the UAE contributed more than Dh65 million.
