STORYLINE:

The UN refugee agency (UNHCR) Goodwill Ambassador Cate Blanchett who visited Bangladesh called for urgent action to protect Rohingya refugees from the worst effects of the upcoming monsoon season, and scale up funding to avoid an “emergency within an emergency.”

Heavy rains, potential cyclones and adverse weather conditions are threatening to put more than 100,000 Rohingya refugees living in congested settlements in Cox’s Bazar district at serious risk in the coming months.

SOUNDBITE (English) Cate Blanchett, UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador:
“The Rohingya refugees have experienced targeted violence, human rights abuses and horrific journeys fleeing Myanmar. Now, as monsoon season approaches, the Bangladesh government, UNHCR and its partners are working flat out to avoid an emergency within an emergency.”

During her visit to Bangladesh Cate met 28-year-old Rohingya refugee Jhura, who fled Myanmar with her two children when her village was attacked six months ago. She was separated from her husband and fears he was killed.

SOUNDBITE (Rohingya) Jhura Begum, Rohingya Refugee:
“I’m worried that the water from above will come into my house, when there’s a landslide. I’m worried because I have two young children. But we won’t be separate from this group of people, what will happen to all, the same will happen to us.”

Due to the topography of the area where the refugees have settled in Bangladesh, Jhura now lives in a shelter built on the side of a steep hill, at risk from monsoons and landslides.

UPSOUND (English) Cate Blanchett, UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador:
“When you think about returning to Myanmar, do you imagine a time where that will be possible?”

SOUNDBITE (ROHINGYA) Jhura Begum, Rohingya Refugee:
“Until and unless we are accepted as a citizen, and we have rights there, and peace, how can we go back there?”

SOUNDBITE (English) Cate Blanchett, UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador:
“Bangladeshis and local communities have shared their very limited resources with these vulnerable refugees. And the international community, governments, private sector and the public have also shown great generosity too. But more funds are urgently needed, it’s vital that we now show solidarity and support.”
