"Having lost their livelihoods fleeing into Bangladesh, the stateless Rohingya refugees living in overcrowded camps are now entirely dependent on international aid to survive.
Donors must take their share of responsibility and generously respond to this funding appeal to ensure protection of rights and delivery of assistance to the Rohingya, and necessary support to the Bangladeshi host community.
In addition, the international community should step up political and diplomatic efforts to secure durable solutions and a safe, voluntary and dignified return home for the Rohingya refugees."
