The Rohingya community on Sunday brought out a procession to celebrate the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the Bangladesh government and the United Nations on humanitarian services to Rohingyas relocated to Bhasan Char, says a press release.

The procession was led by camp focal heads in Bhasan Char at 2:30pm.

The 30-minute procession was joined by some 1,000-1,200 Rohingyas living on the island. The participants were carrying placards and banners that read "Welcome UN", "Welcome UNHCR", "Thank You UN", "We Are Happy At Bhasan Char 2021", and other similar slogans.

On Saturday, Bangladesh and the UN formally signed an agreement, bringing an end to a long wait for the UN engagement in Bhasan Char on the humanitarian front to support Rohingyas.

The agreement covers protection, education, skills-training, livelihoods and health, which will make it easier for the displaced people to live a decent life on the island and better prepare them for a sustainable return to Myanmar in the future.   

Bhasan Char is a remote island under Hatiya upazila in Noakhali district.
