BANGLADESH. Indonesian people’s concern for Rohingya refugees is so great that humanity’s call continues to roll in the country similarly, as shown by the people of West Java. The donation coffers continue to be collected, ranging from individual, communities to companies in West Java also showed concern.

That Sunday afternoon, parents, youths and children represented her family in long queues to exchange coupons with food aid packages. This package of assistance is part of a series of West Java community aid distributions as well as the general Indonesian community that will continue.
According to a report from the United Nations, more than 480,000 refugees have entered Bangladesh since August 25, 2017, and now they have to face the food crisis in refugee camps. “The growing number of refugees makes the need for food continues to increase from time to time.” Said Agus Suryadi, humanity team of Rumah Zakat.
