Sheik Mohammed sends aid to displaced Rohingyas

by | News

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai ordered a private plane to transport humanitarian aid in hopes to alleviate the suffering of Rohingya refugees from Myanmar to Bangladesh.

HH Mohammed Al Maktoum ordered a B747-400 private plane as a support of efforts by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (NHCR).

The aircraft has been loaded with more than 100 metric tonnes of tent made available by UNHCR with the support of International Humanitarian City (IHC) in Dubai.

IHC also made preparations for a fast response by providing warehouses, coordinating airlifts, and arranging for easy and fast track access.

The shipment values Dh2,694,471 while the airlift costs Dh826,470.

This is the second time UNHCR sent an aircraft to Bangladesh. The first one carried 91 metric tonnes of relief items like sleeping mats, blankets and kitchen sets from the humanitarian aids stocked in UNHCR and IHC for 175,000 Rohingya refugees.

Various nations have already helped the fleeing Rohingya refugees like Bangladesh, Nepal, and Indonesia by absorbing some of the refugees.

On March this year, President Rodrigo Duterte donated Php15 million or Dh1,101,900 to State Counselor of Myanmar and Nobel Peace Prize awardee Aung San Suu Kyi as a way of helping the Rohingyas.

The Philippine government also said in November 2016 that they are open to accept Rohingya refugees after western countries chose to close their borders instead.

Reuters has reported that an estimated number of 800,000 to 1,100,000 Rohingyas are seeking refuge after experiencing systematic violence and persecution from the Myanmar government.
