Dhaka: As more than 03 lakh Rohingya Muslims struggle for their life at Bangladesh border, volunteers of UK based International humanitarian relief organisation Khalsa Aid came forward to help them and some of the photos showing their gesture have taken Twitter by storm.
The Khalsa Aid volunteers reached the Myanmar-Bangladesh border on Sunday night to provide food, water and shelter to over three lakh Rohingya Muslim refugees who according to the United Nations are facing worst kind of persecution.
Carrying relief materials for around 50,000 refugees, the volunteers reached the Bangladesh’s border town Teknaf, where refugee camps have been set up by the local government.
#RohingyaMuslims : Humanity is above all !! Our volunteers are on border of Bangladesh/Myanmar are reaching out to refugees. #Humanity, the caption with the photo posted on Twitter read.
Amarpreet Singh, managing director, Khalsa Aid, as reported by Indian Express, said, “A camp can accommodate at least 50,000 people but in most of them there are more than one lakh refugees. But we are committed to run langar here (community here) till the crisis is not over. The priority is to not let anyone sleep without food. Children are roaming without clothes and begging for food”.
The Khalsa Aid team is bringing the required relief material for the refugees from Dhaka, which is 10 hours ride from Teknaf.
The team will continue to provide aid to the refugees till the crisis gets over. Now, it is making arrangements to help as many refugees as possible as the number is rising with each passing day.
Myanmar has been slammed by the United Nations Human Rights for its failure to check the ethnic violence.
