UNHCR calls for solidarity with Rohingyas in Ramadan

UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Filippo Grandi has called for solidarity with millions of forcibly displaced people worldwide, including over one million Rohingyas living in Bangladesh. The UNHCR chief shared his warmest wishes with all those observing the holy month of Ramadan with a call for unity in the face of prevailing challenges.

The holy month of Ramadan conveys a very important message today which we must not forget: may what unites us prevail over what divides us,he said in a video message.

The High Commissioner said Ramadan provides a time to remember the innocent lives lost in pursuit of safety and asylum, and to show their support to the millions driven from their homes by violence and persecution. Let's honour their resilience and stand in solidarity with them, today and every day.
