Angelina Jolie, special envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR),  recently wrote a letter to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina highly praising Bangladesh for the generosity and leadership it has demonstrated in the Rohingya crisis. 

She appreciated Bangladesh for giving shelter to the Rohingya people and ensuring their safety and security.

The Hollywood star mentioned that the UNHCR would continue its efforts to engage with Myanmar to create suitable conditions for the sustainable return of the Rohingya.

She committed to continuing her advocacy for the continued humanitarian response for the Rohingya people and expressed gratitude to the people of Bangladesh for all kinds of support.
