Suu Kyi said in a televised address on Thursday evening that she would invite aid organisations and business leaders to take part in the initiative.
Domestic investigations, including a previous internal military probe, have largely dismissed refugees’ claims of abuses committed during security forces’ “clearance operations”.
Credible information indicates that the Myanmar security forces purposely destroyed the property of the Rohingyas and entire villages in northern Rakhine State.
Bangladeshi Foreign Minister said about 500,000 Rohingyas had fled to Bangladesh out of the total 900,000 that have left Myanmar after an army crackdown on the community.
The insurgents said on Saturday they were ready to respond to any peace move by the government, even though the ceasefire was ending at midnight on Monday.
While the influx of refugees into Bangladesh continues, the needs of the more vulnerable populations such as women and children are yet to be fully responded to.
“The bottom line? This is a deplorable situation. This is as bad as it gets. We need 75 million for the next six months.”
US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley called on countries to suspend providing weapons to Myanmar over violence against Rohingya Muslims.
If only Muslims reach out to help the Rohingya, the international community will suffer another blow to its reputation.
The protest was testament to rising communal animosity that threatens to complicate the delivery of vital supplies.
Western governments that backed Suu Kyi’s campaign against military rule still see her as the best hope for Myanmar’s political and economic transition.
“The UN Security Council and concerned countries should impose targeted sanctions and an arms embargo on the Burmese military to end its ethnic cleansing campaign,” Human Rights Watch said.
Many have died along the way. Others have found themselves detained by human traffickers, demanding payment for their rescue.
