Melbourne Community Donates for Displaced Rohingya and Kaman Victims in Arakan State

by Admin,
Rohingya organization (ABRO) base in Melbourne received the donations from
Monash University Islamic Society during the end of fasting 'Ramadan' month.
According to Habib, the ABRO received the 3 separate donations total amount of (AUD 4,645) from Dr. Rizvi who is chairperson of Monash University Islamic Society and also a member of newly formed- the 'Rohingya Action Group' which aims to bring a proper attention to end the crisis of Rohingya and Kaman people.
The donations of rice have been distributed on the ground for displaced Rohingya and Kaman victims who are in remote locations where aid workers unreachable areas such as:
Ngat Chaung camp of Pautaw township,
Taungpaw camp of Myebon township, and
Pa-rein camp of Mrauk Oo township.
This little distribution prioritised for unregistered victims. Unregisered means they don't receive any thing from WFP or MSF. The story of how they live on is unthinkable.
Habib added that the displaced Rohingya and Kaman people living in 42 locations across Arakan state numbering about 165,000 according to 2013 data, are ending up in systematic confinement in the hand of heavy persecutions since June 2012.
Fleeing through the sea-routes therefore remains only option of escaping from such situation.
