World Food Programme goodwill ambassador Sabry visits Rohingya camp

Agency News

Dhaka, Nov 16 : Arab film and TV star and World Food Programme (WFP) Goodwill Ambassador Hend Sabry on Saturday visited the world’s largest refugee camp Cox’s Bazar where one million Rohingyas have sought sanctuary.

"I wanted to visit the Rohingya families in the camps to show that suffering has no borders and humanity has no boundaries," said Sabry.

Today I met inspiring women who have become heads of their households and are doing their best for their children in one of humanity’s most difficult circumstances. They have lost so much but remain hopeful and looking forward to their future. Their stories are heart-breaking, and their resilience inspiring, said Sabry.

Sabry visited a number of WFP-supported projects, including food distribution, nutrition services for children, and skills training to build self-reliance for women, said a WFP press release today.

WFP supports the food needs of 80 percent of the camp population, or 840,000 of them, through direct food assistance and also e-vouchers with which they can buy food at WFP-designated shops run by contracted local retailers. (UNI)
