BANDA ACEH. Sunday (10/5), RZ fielded some volunteers to distribute logistic assistance to 658 refugees known Moslem Rohingya.
They came from some South East Asia countries such as Bangladesh, Myanmar, and Vietnam. They were rescued by local fisherman as they oscillated for several days on ship.
“They can’t speak English, Arabic, or Bahasa so we find some difficulties to communicate with them,” Budi Syahputra, Branch Manager of RZ Medan, said.
In this action, RZ distributed fresh milk, mineral water, sugar, biscuits, cooking oil, instant noodle, chocolate, and decent clothes for them. “Their condition is very poor. They were starving and exhausting while on ship.” Syahputra added. ***
