Leader donates money to Rohingya Muslims

October 17, 2017

TEHRAN – Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has donated 10 billion Rials (roughly $250,000) to the Rohingya Muslims who have fled their homes in Myanmar amid severe government crackdown, Khemeni.ir reported on Tuesday.

It came after an official letter by the Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) which briefed the Supreme Leader on the plight of the Rohingya Muslims and IRCS’s humanitarian aid to the displaced minority community.

According to the UN, 537,000 Rohingya have fled Myanmar for Bangladesh over the past seven weeks.
