“ No relief for Rohingyas community in Maungdaw, even the authority or other Burmese NGOs delivered relief goods to Rakhine community – who are backing government  and cam move everywhere under the emergence ACT 144 and staying freely in their home.  The authority only open relief center for Rakhine, not for Rohingyas who are also fear for arrest by security forces and not allow to go out from their home to search foods for their survival.”

Muslim NGOs or International Muslim country was delivered relief goods to both communities – Rohingya and Rakhine- in Akyab. The Aids workers are not allow giving relief goods in Maungdaw and Rathedaung. The authority opens seven relief centers for Rakhine who are only 4% in Maungdaw. No center for Rohingyas who are more sufferer and majority in Maungdaw. The security forces are hunting Rohingya community and helping Rakhine.”
