Governments Should Support UNFPA’s Work With Rohingya Refugees

CNN: Show Rohingya women that we care
Ashley Judd, actress, activist, and goodwill ambassador for UNFPA

“…We must put pressure on our governments to support UNFPA to ensure it can continue to carry out its vital work for Rohingya refugees. … [W]ith more money we can pay for more midwives to deliver babies safely, and for more safe spaces for women and girls. We need to follow the noble lead of Bangladesh, which despite its own challenges has opened its borders and welcomed its persecuted Rohingya neighbors. Locals have shared what little they had with the newcomers to make sure they can eat, drink, and survive. And I believe that there are many more nations who want to do their part, too” (3/15).
