… I was a stranger and you invited me in.—Matthew 25:35
When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt.
RELIEF CAMP AMONG REFUGEES
Yesterday our team member Mr. Naveen & team visited with the Rohingya refugees where many Myanmar Refugees were settled for the past 9 years and lost their homes due to fire within 90 minutes. We met one of the leaders of the Myanmar refugee communities Mr. Amanutullah, he has four children they make their living by selling clothes on the streets of Delhi. We asked them how the fire began and was it done intentionally to harm the community?
To this his response was that this was intentionally caused by some elements that do not like us because of our ethnicity and faith. "We have lost everything" he said everything that we rebuilt in the past 9 years has gone up in flames in a matter of minutes we don't even have access to clean drinking water, food, clothes or shelter.
Mr. Amanutullah said, thank you for getting involved, we feel like that we have been abandoned by everyone. First our country abandoned us and now no one wants us to be live, we have no place to go.
An estimated 40,000 Rohingya refugees, many believed to be undocumented, live in camps across Indian cities, including Jammu, Hyderabad and Nuh. The United Nations refugee agency has provided some of them with refugee cards, which helps them to access some basic services.
