    A friend told me today: “My grandfather was a refugee. We queued with him to collect a bag of rice. Had he been allowed to be a taxi driver, he would have been spared this humiliation, and I would not think of him with regret.” #InternationalLabourDay #SDG8 #DecentWork for all. https://t.co/ASPnwdFAy5

    Evacuations of refugees from Libya continue, with thanks to Italy for this important gesture. It is possible to save lives at risk in orderly, well managed operations, but we need more countries to participate and support. https://t.co/V5c9qJ4HHa

    The world must do all it can to keep those smiles on the faces of the Rohingya children! https://t.co/eV9WQ82BAO

    I spoke to many Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. All gave me the same message: providing their children with quality education is the most urgent priority, while they wait for the situation in Myanmar to allow for their safe return. https://t.co/9yLkR2Ti1R

    Operations to support Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh are underfunded. More resources are urgently needed from donors to better prepare for monsoon rains and possibly cyclones - not in a few months, but now. @IOMchief @UNReliefChief https://t.co/RAk3a1AstA

    UN organisations in Bangladesh are working hard to provide Rohingya refugees with cards allowing them to be identified and obtain food, supplies and services. A personal document which is also a tangible sign of dignity and hope. https://t.co/OWyKtA04rb

    High prices, deforestation, traffic jams, insecurity... visiting Cox’s Bazar, once again, shows the dramatic impact on local communities hosting Rohingya refugees. @IOMchief @UNReliefChief and I are calling on donors to do more (and act faster) to share this burden. https://t.co/4R0aMvGwq3
