According to locals, to date, DRC has been working effectively on humanitarian grounds for the suffering Rohingya, meeting their immediate demands.
“We want DRC to continue their work here, as they worked effectively for our suffering, we don’t want it to change with any other NGOs,” says a protesting Rohingya at Kutupalong.
The protest was organized by the locals, after an announcement of DRC to be stopped working and will be replaced with any other NGOs in the makeshift camps.

Many INGOs including UNHCR, MSF, and WFP have been working to assist the immediate needs of the Rohingya,but Rohingya was first time seen in a protest in favor of an NGO to peruse its work.
Since late 2016, 1.3 million Rohingya have been driven out their homes from Arakan (Rakhine) to the apartheid makeshift camp in Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh and are suffering from all aspects of human needs.
