ASIAN BISHOPS VISIT COX’S BAZAR, ASK FOR A SOLUTION TO ROHINGYA REFUGEE PROBLEM

Light of truth

A delegation from the Office of Human Development (OHD) of the Federation of Asian Bishops’ Conferences (FABC) visited Cox’s Bazar, the largest refugee area in the world with at least 750,000 Rohingya.

The visit took place between 11 and 17 February, ending with the delegation issuing an official statement urging the international community to find a diplomatic solution to the on-going refugee crises around Asia. Its goal was to meet migrants, listen to their stories, and assess options for renewable energy in Asia.

The group was led by Card Patrick D’Rozario, archbishop of Dhaka and president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Bangladesh, and by the Vatican envoy Msgr George Kocherry.
