AMMAN — The Rohingya Relief Campaign on Monday distributed the second batch of aid under the campaign implemented by the Jordan Hashemite Charity Organisation (JHCO) and professional associations to help Rohingya refugees who fled Myanmar to Bangladesh. The aid, part of the first phase of the campaign, included blankets, mats and coats, while the first batch included food items, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The Jordanian delegation arrived in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh on the borders with Myanmar on Saturday and is scheduled to finish distributing aid today.

The campaign opened a bank account at the Jordan Islamic Bank (No. 49992) to collect donations, in addition to receiving assistance at the JHCO headquarters, the Professional Association Complex and its branches in governorates.
