Bangladesh observes World Refugee Day highlighting refugees' rights

World Refugee Day was observed in the country Sunday to raise awareness on the rights of refugees.

Designed to celebrate and honour refugees from around the world, Refugee Day is an occasion to build empathy and understanding for the plight of refugees and recognise their resilience in rebuilding their lives.

With the theme "together we heal, learn and shine," different donors and development organisations held programmes to mark the day.  

Humanitarian Crisis Management Programme (HCMP) of Brac hosted programmes at Rohingya camps in Cox's Bazar. Young boys and girls took part in the events.

Community Group members of Community-Based Protection of Brac arranged a drawing competition and a henna (mehendi) festival at Camp-4 Extension of Rohingya Shelter Centre in Cox's Bazar Ukhiya.  

Community Group volunteers celebrated the occasion by painting henna on each other's hands.

An exhibition was held at the UN's refugee agency's (UNHCR) Cox's Bazar office in the afternoon to showcase the hand-made goods of Rohingya volunteers of Community-Based Protection of Brac.
