COVID-19: Rohingya NGO in Malaysia wants emergency support

544

 

KUALA LUMPUR:  Myanmar Ethnic Rohingya Human Rights Organization Malaysia (MERHROM) has received hundreds of request from Rohingya in Malaysia for the Emergency Support during Covid 19 pandemic.

Many of the Rohingya Refugees in Malaysia cannot go to work due to Movement Control Order (MCO) imposed by the Malaysian government to curb Covid 19.

“We understand everyone have been affected by this pandemic.

“The situation of Rohingya refugees is extremely vulnerable as most of us depend on daily wages to survive.

“Many Rohingya refugees are struggling to survive now as we do not have any saving. Most Rohingya refugees just stay at home without any means to get money to feed their family.” highlighted Mehrhrom President Zafar Ahmad Bin Abdul Ghani via a press statement.

Zafar added that “While they are struggling to pay the house rental, they need to bring food for their families and milk for their children.

“Most Rohingya has run out of food but we have another week to go. We are unsure if the government will extend the Movement Control Order. We cannot imagine how we are going to survive if the MCO continue.”

MERHROM is not funded; therefore we cannot provide any financial assistance for the affected Rohingya refugees.

We appeal to the UNHCR, private sectors, OIC, European Union, Malaysian, and other International  government to help the affected Rohingya refugees.

As an emergency response to the current critical situation, MERHROM has made an appeal to the fellow Rohingya to assist the most affected Rohingya until we manage to get some help.

Yesterday, Mr. Harun Rasyid bin Md. Habi, MERHROM Vice President distributed some rice, oil, sugar and potatoes to some families in Taman Jujur, Seremban. However it was very limited.

As of now we do not receive any assistance for the affected Rohingya. We encourage everyone to open their heart to help the affected refugees.

Also Zafar thanked the Malaysian government and law enforcement authorities especially the Health Ministry, Royal Malaysian Police, Armed Forces, RELA, local council officers for working very hard to curb Covid 19.

We pray Almighty God will protect and save us including everyone in Malaysia and around the world, Zafar added.
