on Rohingya crisis begins

A two-day photo exhibition on Rohingya crisis began in the capital yesterday, reports UNB. The exhibition titled ‘Rohingya Crisis: 1 Year on’ is presented by the government of Bangladesh, the Inter Sector Coordination Group and the United Nations. It remains open at Bay's Edgewater Gallery in Gulshan from 10 am to 8 pm.

Earlier, a pre-launch reception was held at the venue on Monday evening participated officials from government, diplomatic community and the United Nations.

A collection of photographs have been put on display at the exhibition shared by the government and over 40 humanitarian agencies that are responding to the Rohingya crisis in Cox's Bazar.

The photographs bring to life last year's initial influx, the resilience of the Rohingya, the host community, emergency mitigation and international support to the Rohingya people. Contributions by IOM, UNFPA, UNHCR, UNICEF, WFP and WHO have made it possible to curate and present this exhibition of emotive photographs that tell a compelling story, said the organisers.
