PV Desk : Nearly two months since Rohingya families began fleeing en masse to Bangladesh, thousands of children and women are still without basic lifesaving services, UNICEF said today.

The warning comes as representatives of donor governments and humanitarian organizations meet in Geneva for a pledging conference today aimed at drumming up resources for what remains a severely under-funded emergency.

“The Rohingya refugee crisis shows no sign of abating,” said Edouard Beigbeder, UNICEF Representative to Bangladesh in the conference, according to a release issued here today.

Edouard Beigbeder said, “The needs of refugees and those of the communities hosting them are increasing at a much faster pace than our capacity to respond…We need more resources and we need them now.”
