Muslim World League launches Integrated Refugee Services Center of Rohingya in Bangladesh
The Secretary General of the Muslim World League Sheikh Dr. Muhammad bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa inaugurated the Integrated Services Center for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, stressing the importance of establishing the center as soon as possible in accordance with the best standards set by the MWL. The Secretary General of MWL called for abiding by the highest practices related to the humanitarian work of relief, care and development. All this is aimed at achieving qualitative shift in the relief work for the Rohingya refugees who live in difficult conditions in unsuitable camps that lack the most basic necessities of life. He also added that the MWL’s International Association for Relief, Care and Development is keen on establishing a small community of refugees Rohingya equipped with full services that include social facilities providing basic education, vocational training and primary health care, which will give them an environment similar to that of their normal life. This will help them co-exist with their new reality especially children, female and male students.
Dr. Al-Issa praised the strenuous efforts exerted by the International Association for Relief, Care and Development in preparation for planning for the establishment of the Rohingya Refugee Services Center in Bangladesh. He also got acquainted with a visual report on the utilities and integrated services of the center, confirming that the MWL is keen to supporting and relieving Rohingya displaced people who have recently suffered from brutality by racist terrorism.
In a statement issued earlier, Dr. Al-Issa said that the MWL made a call to the whole world’s organizations and peoples highlighting brutality and genocide Rohingya Muslims suffer from in Myanmar-Burma. He affirmed that this historic disturbing chapter in the UN’s humanitarian record will be a witness to the magnitude of world weakness for stopping these crimes and massacres which represent one of the worst terrorist and bloody crimes. These crimes and massacres are similar to these ones committed by the most dangerous terrorist organizations like Daesh. Silence in the face of such brutal crimes is silence in the face of truth and this gives strong pretexts of the negative concepts on the weakness of the international justice system and its will to fight and eradicate terrorism
Dr. Al-Issa confirmed that the MWL is keen on economically empowering Rohingya refugees to be able to depend on themselves and become self-sufficient, thus achieving sustainable development that represents a key axe of the Humanitarian work of the MWL.
The Secretary General of the MWL also stressed the importance of the project in raising the health awareness of Rohingya Muslims through the focus on and attention to women's personal, psychological and health needs. Because the women are an important pillar of survival and coexistence
Meanwhile, Dr Al-Issa stressed the need to focus on the contribution of these efforts and actions to mitigating the effects of physical and psychological violence suffered by Rohingya refugees by specialized psychological programs, programs of reuniting Rohingya family members and caring orphans and widows in addition to other similar specialized programs.
Dr. Al-Issa also said that these important actions taken by the MWL’s International Association for Relief, Care and Development support and reinforce its international presence as a major global organization with heavy weight and influence through harnessing all potentials to spread everywhere of the world. Prophet Mohamed (Peace be upon him) asked: “Is there a reward for us in serving any human beings?" He replied: "Yes, there is a reward for serving any animate (living being)." (See Hadith No. 551)
