‘Hunger Will Kill Us.’ A Global Food Crisis Looms!
We also carried out our Manavata Food Programme in Kathmandu to support a refugee Camp for displaced children of Rohingya people.
We give 135 packets of egg fried rice to these needy children. These are people thrown out from Myanmar and residing illegally in Kapan, Kathmandu.
These people don’t have papers and can’t work legally moreover the children don’t have warm clothes to wear in this freezing cold or good meal to eat.
Background to the Rohingya situation:
This situation has been declared as ethnic cleansing and genocide by various UN agencies, ICC officials, human rights groups, and governments. The UN described the persecution as “a textbook example of ethnic cleansing”.
Rohingya refugees came to Nepal for asylum from Rakhine state of Myanmar. The Rohingyas entered Nepal in the 1990s but mainly in 2012. They came via eastern Nepal by crossing Bangladesh and India. They have been settled in Kapan at Kathmandu and various locations in Terai.
