Angelina Jolie, the special envoy of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), has highly appreciated Bangladesh for the generosity and leadership it demonstrated in dealing with the Rohingya crisis.

She recently wrote a letter to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and appreciated Bangladesh for giving shelter to the Rohingyas and ensuring their safety and security.

The Special Envoy mentioned that the UNHCR would continue its efforts to engage with Myanmar to create suitable conditions for the sustainable return of the Rohingyas. She hoped that Bangladesh’s initiatives for the Rohingyas would help to get better funding for the 2020 Joint Response Plan for the Rohingya Humanitarian Crisis which would be launched in March 2020.

She committed to continue her advocacy for the humanitarian response for the Rohingyas and expressed gratefulness to the people of Bangladesh for all kinds of support.

Angelina Jolie visited Rohingya camps in Cox’s Bazar in February 2019 in her capacity as UNHCR Special Envoy.
