OIC welcomes Saudi support to Rohingya in Myanmar's Rakhine state

JEDDAH, (Pakistan Point News - APP - 08th Nov, 2016 ) - The General Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) welcomed the signing of an operational programme between King Salman Relief and Humanitarian Aid Centre (KS-RELIEF) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM), for delivering humanitarian aid and relief supplies in Myanmar. The KS-RELIEF Centre will carry out projects in 35 villages in Myanmar's Rakhine State, with a view to boost agricultural development and provide necessary means for a decent livelihood, thereby contributing to the reduction of outward illegal migratory flow and improvement of living conditions.

In this regard, the OIC General Secretariat appeals to its member states as well as Civil Society Organizations and NGOs for making similar humanitarian aid efforts, with the objective of catering to the needs of people in Myanmar, particularly in Rakhine State.
