Malaysian relief for Rohingyas sent to Cox’ Bazar
The district administration on Sunday has started sending Malaysian relief goods for Rohingyas to Cox’ Bazar.
On completion of customs formalities, several trucks loaded with relief items, including rice, powdered milk, dried date, biscuit, cloths, drinking water and soaps, started for Cox’s Bazar this morning, said Md Zillur Rahman Chowdhury, deputy commissioner of Chittagong.
The relief materials will be handed over to deputy commissioner of Cox’s Bazar and then the district administration will distribute those among Rohingya refugees, he said, adding that the goods, hopefully, will reach Cox’s Bazar by this afternoon.
A plane, A-400m, carrying the 12 tonnes of relief materials and seven Malaysian crew arrived in Shah Amanat International Airport in Chittagong on Saturday evening.
Wing commander Riaz Uddin, manager of the airport, told UNB that they handed over the relief to the Chittagong deputy commissioner at the airport.
