Sheikh Hasina Urges IOM To Secure More Funds For Rohingya Assistance

Share on:

Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday urged the International Organization for Migration (IOM) to raise more funds from newer sources for assistance of the Rohingyas sheltered in Bangladesh. She said since the assistance for Rohingyas has declined, the IOM should look for new partners to raise more funds for them.
The premier made this call when IOM Director General Amy Pope paid a courtesy call on her at the latter’s official residence in Dhaka.
The premier also urged the IOM to help relocate Rohingyas to Bhashanchar as an abode for one lakh Rohingyas has been built there with all the facilities including education, healthcare services and employment.
Around 30-35 thousand Rohingyas have so far been relocated to the Bhashan char. During the meeting, the IOM DG, who visited the Rohingya camps in Cox’s Bazar yesterday, has raised the issue of security in the Rohingya camps to the premier.
Sheikh Hasina said her government has deployed appropriate number of security personnel in Cox’s Bazar Rohingya camps to ensure their safety and security.
