June 11, 2017

KUALA LUMPUR: A UAE charity has organised an Iftar event for Rohingya refugees in Malaysia where 1,870 food baskets were distributed to more than 900 families.

The Iftar campaign is part of the Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation's continuous efforts to provide aid assistance to Rohingya refugees, in cooperation with the UAE Embassy in Kuala Lumpur.

A spokesperson from the foundation said that the campaign will continue throughout the Holy Month of Ramadan and hopes to reach more than 20,000 people. Mass Iftars will be held in locations such as mosques and orphanages.

So far, the Khalifa Foundation has donated around US$1 million towards helping Rohingya refugees in Malaysia, with the latest campaign being the fifth phase of the programme.

The event was attended by Khalifa Rashid Al Mehrazi, Charge d'Affaires of the UAE Embassy in Malaysia, representatives of Rohingya organisations in Malaysia, and local media.
