Today #WorldRefugeeDay we inaugurated the first Intensive Care Unit in Cox's Bazar's Sadar hospital, in support to the Government of Bangladesh.
This will serve the needs of the most severely affected #Rohingya refugees & the local Bangladeshi population.
"We are living in unprecedented times. The Covid-19 pandemic has spread like wildfire around the world... We are in the fight of our lives & at the same time another human tragedy continues to smoulder & burn: the global displacement crisis" @CorlissUNHCR
So proud of all of our committed & dedicated colleagues including @mahmuda101 , @SabrinaSayed , @cgodlake and #ShirinAktar, who discussed the challenges of the #Rohingya crisis as well as COVID-19 with Special Envoy Angelina Jolie on the eve of #WorldRefugeeDay https://t.co/NhSLfqRGCs
So delighted to have some good news!
First 10 #COVID_19 patients have recovered & been discharged from our SARI ITC in Ukhiya, Cox's Bazar today.
There is a long way to go, but its important to celebrate the good moments.

Awful attack on innocent refugees & IDPs in Intikane, Niger. ??
Senseless violence & destruction of supplies amidst the ongoing pandemic.
Niger is an incredible country, providing refuge to those forced to flee multiple countries despite it's own economic & security challenges https://t.co/7hucHZTfIU
