Tell the Australian Government to protect Rohingya children

Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya children continue to suffer in our region, in a crisis not of their making. Plan International's research shows that girls are at particular risk of exploitation in overcrowded, under-resourced camps. As an important regional power, Australia has a critical role to play in helping these children. signersigner
Therefore, we ask that the Australian government use its leadership and influence to:
-Urge the Government of Bangladesh to allow aid agencies access to those in need, particularly adolescent girls in Cox's Bazar
-Pressure the international community to fully fund the humanitarian response without delay
-Ensure the rights of Rohingya children, especially girls are protected by using our seat on the Human Rights Council to keep the issue on the international agenda.
Sign your name and tell the Australian Government to protect Rohingya children, especially girls.
This petition is part of Plan International Australia's ongoing Half a Billion Reasons campaign. Together we call on the Australian Government to prioritise gender equality for girls in Australia's aid and foreign policy
