With interest in the Rohingya refugees fading two years after fleeing their homeland, the World Food Programme has found a new weapon to maintain awareness, one with a wet nose and a wagging tail.
The exodus attracted global attention at the time, but despite the efforts of aid agencies － including a visit to the camps by UN Special Envoy Angelina Jolie － the world is losing interest.
But in late 2018, workers from the WFP rescued a three-week-old puppy abandoned on the beach, adopting him and naming him Foxtrot.
Gemma Snowdon, a WFP communications officer, said that after posting photos of Foxtrot on her personal social media pages, she had a brainwave that the canine could be put to good use.
"As time goes on, interest and attention on situations like these and emergency responses like these does naturally die off," Snowdon said, "Foxtrot is opening us up to new audiences, and keeping the story of what’s happening here on the agenda." (AFP)
