NRS International responds to the Rohingya refugee crisis27 Sep 2017
In just the past month, 480,000 Rohingyas have poured into Bangladesh, one of the largest mass refugee movements in Asia in decades. An international humanitarian response is now delivering aid essentials to the refugees fleeing their homes in Myanmar. Accordingly, NRS Relief has activated its ‘Rapid Response Strategy’ approach, so that aid agencies and local authorities get the required supplies of emergency response materials.
