I have proposed UNHCR a similar BUT much better and wider plan for all the refugees around the world

I have proposed UNHCR a similar BUT much better and wider plan for all the refugees around the world, about 5-6 years ago.
I sent through e-mails, registered posts and by-hand to one of the Malay lady officer who visited my clinic.
They never show any interest nor any response at all. Seem to fall on deaf ears and there was a deafening silence from the UNHCR.
Shame to you UNHCR officials!
I hereby wish to request my friends in high places or who have good connections, please forward my suggestion to the UNHCR HQ.
I will search and give the links of my proposal below as comments.

Refugee communities welcome plan

Email

PETALING JAYA: The refugee communities in Malaysia have welcomed the proposal for their women to help fill the demand for domestic workers in the country.

“Some Somali women are already working as home servants and clean houses or offices part-time,” said S. Sharif Mohamed, leader of the Somali refugee community in Gombak, Kuala Lumpur.

“The women who are here are mostly war or political widows and they rely on assistance from relatives and friends. Working as maids will give them a chance to be self-dependent. The work experience will also give them a better chance to get work if they go to a third country after Malaysia,” he added.

There are currently 1,170 Somali refugees – over 90% of whom are women in the country.

Sharif believes cultural difference will not be an issue.

“Although African culture is different from Asian culture, as Muslims we share many similarities with the Malaysian Muslims.”

The proposal will also help many Myanmar refugees who need to support their families with a stable income, said Moe Moe Khing, the women affairs coordinator for the Burma Refugee Organisation.

While they welcome the plan to allow refugees in Malaysia to work, Mohammad Sadek, programme coordinator for the Rohingya Arakanese Refugee Committee said Rohingya women would need to receive education and some training before they are able to go out and work.

He said one worry they have is that UNHCR will stop their aid and support if the refugees start working.

Tenaganita executive director Dr Irene Fernandez said the refugees’ rights should be protected in the event they are hired as maids.

“The shortage of domestic workers is there because we do not have laws and polices in place to protect their rights. Unless and until we put the right protection in place, we should not be recruiting anyone into domestic work, much less refugees who are already vulnerable to exploitation,” said Dr Fernandez.

    UNHCR is not a Christian missionary but as it depends of the christian missionaries from the Developed countries who are accepting the resettlement of refugees, naturally the will prefer and give priority to Christians. We cannot blame them or UNHCR BUT we NEED TO BLAME and pressure our own Muslim countries from OIC and ASEAN who refused to accept the Myanmar refugees including Rohingyas and other Muslims of Myanmar.

    And because of the involvement of the 2 refugees in London tube-bombing, one refugee Imam who started the Campaign against our Prophet’s caricature in Denmark (I am not telling that they are wrong) and the gang-fights of Muslim migrants with white-boys at the beaches of Australia…and by the persons with student visas involvement in 9-11…Involvement of 2-3 Rohingyas in the Bangladesh nationwide (100 bombings) cases may effect the trust on Muslim migrants and refugees. But still most of the Christian countries R accepting the Muslim Refugees and migrants. The real problem is the OIC and Muslim countries.
