Rohingya mission to be launched on Friday

KUALA LUMPUR: Kelab Putera 1Malaysia (KP1M)'s humanitarian mission to Myanmar/ Bangladesh will be launched on Friday to help the oppressed Rohingya refugees.

KP1M president Datuk Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim, who is also the head of the mission, said: "We are not going to interfere with the politics, we just want to help the Rohingya community. 

"We hope this effort by KP1M will get Malaysians' blessing. Please pray that we will come back safely so that we can give more help in the future," he said yesterday. 

KP1M's observer team had left for the border of Myanmar and Bangladesh yesterday to gauge the situation at the refugee camps there. 

Its purpose is to coordinate and make preparations for the main team. 

The main team will depart from Port Klang on a Royal Malaysian Navy ship to Chittagong Port in Bangladesh, bringing along 450 tonnes of aid. The team will consist of 40 members, including doctors and the media. 

KP1M will set up a clinic in Myanmar, with medicines worth RM310,000 for treatment

There are two camps under the auspices of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Kutupalog and Nayapara on the border of Bangladesh with 30,000 refugees. 

There are also camps that are not recognised in the vicinity with 100,000 refugees. 

In Myanmar, there are two refugees camps in Maungdaw and Bathidaung under the UNHCR as well. 

At the press conference here yesterday, about 2,000 Rohingya working in Malaysia came to give donations and moral support to the mission.
