The communities or countries providing safe refuge to people fleeing war or persecution shouldn’t be alone and unsupported, the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says on the occasion of World Refugee Day.
The Rohingyas, the third largest refugee group in the world last year, are now in critical need of international protection as their condition is worse than the others, the UN Refugee Agency has said.
Tragically, more than 68 million people worldwide have been forced from their homes and are in need of generous hearts to help them through challenging times. Today is World Refugee Day, which provides an opportunity to reflect on the suffering of displaced people and what we can do to provide them safety as well as to prevent future displacement. On this year's World Refugee Day, Bangladesh stands out as a beacon of hope and inspiration.
CR Abrar, Professor of International Relations at the University of Dhaka, talks to Eresh Omar Jamal about Myanmar's genocidal campaign against the Rohingyas and the international community's unfortunate but overwhelming silence in response.
United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) will celebrate the World Refugee Day 2018 in Rohingya refugee camps in Cox's Bazar on June 20 to raise global awareness for global responsibility for refugees.
