Suffering, humanity have no boundaries

Says Arab star, WFP Ambassador Sabry
UNB, Dhaka

Arab film and TV star and World Food Programme (WFP) Goodwill Ambassador Hend Sabry wanted to visit the Rohingya families in the Rohingya  camps to show that suffering has no borders and humanity has no boundaries, she said. Sabry, mother of two girls, finally visited the world’s largest refugee camp on Thursday where over one million Rohingyas have sought sanctuary.

This was Sabry’s first mission outside the Middle East and North Africa region since she was appointed WFP Goodwill Ambassador in 2010. Prior to Bangladesh, she visited WFP’s operations in Egypt, Tunisia, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine and Syria, said the WFP on Friday.

“I met inspiring women who have become heads of their households and are doing their best for their children in one of humanity’s most difficult circumstances. They have lost so much but remain hopeful and looking forward to their future. Their stories are heart-breaking, and their resilience inspiring,” she said in a message after the visit. Sabry visited a number of WFP-supported projects, including food distribution, nutrition services for children, and skill training to build self-reliance for women. WFP supports the food needs of 80 percent of the camp population, or 840,000 of them, through direct food assistance and also e-vouchers with which they can buy food at WFP-designated shops run by contracted local retailers.
