123,000 Rohingya flee to Bangladesh escaping violence in Myanmar
Description: An estimated 123,000 refugees have arrived in Bangladesh since violence broke out in Myanmar’s northern Rakhine state last month. UNHCR is gravely concerned about the continuing conflict in Myanmar and by reports that civilians have died trying to seek safety. Those who have made it to Bangladesh are in poor condition. Most have walked for days from their villages – hiding in jungles, crossing mountains and rivers with what they could salvage from their homes. They are hungry, weak and sick. The new arrivals are scattered in different locations in south-eastern Bangladesh. More than 30,000 Rohingya are estimated to have sought shelter in the existing refugee camps of Kutupalong and Nayapara. Many others are living in makeshift sites and local villages. There is an urgent need for additional emergency shelters and land as more refugees arrive.

Hindus, Muslims and Rakhine put aside their differences and work together in peace on daily basis. The market helps build bridges between divided communities in Myanmar who have been long divided by violence and persecution.  “It’s very important to work together. If he (the cook) is absent from work, I have difficulty doing the job, if he (the waiter) is absent, I won’t be able to work,” Momo says while serving customers. “So it’s very important to be together always.” www.unhcr.org/uk/news/stories/2017/7/596f75d19/myanmars-ethnic-divisions-forgotten-towns-busy-market.html Information for media: If you would like to use this video to communicate refugee stories or require B-Roll, transcripts, stills or much more information, please contact hqvideo@unhcr.org. --- Keep up to date with our latest videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/unhcr?sub_confirmation=1 -- UNHCR, the UN refugee agency, works to protect and assist those fleeing war and persecution.

Myanmar: Sewing Project Helps Unite Divided Communities
Description: UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi has appealed to communities in Myanmar’s restive Rakhine state to unite in the face of fear, mistrust and underdevelopment. On his first official visit to South-East Asia, Grandi met with displaced people, local communities and the authorities in Sittwe and Maungdaw townships to better understand their needs and challenges. In Maungdaw, Grandi visited a UNHCR, UN Refugee Agency, supported project to promote peaceful co-existence through vocational training classes. It brings together 20 Muslim and Rakhine women to learn sewing skills and basic literacy, as well as health and hygiene education. Although they would appear to have little in common, many of these women have either had no education or had to drop out of school to support their families.
