UK provides $3.74 million humanitarian support to Rohingyas

BM Report

The United Kingdom (UK) announced a fund of 3.74 million USD to support Rohingya refugees through UNHCR. The humanitarian funding will help refugees in Cox’s Bazar and Bhasan Char access healthcare, clean water, hygiene and sanitation services, and cooking fuel, according to a statement published on Tuesday by the UK government.

Permanent Under-Secretary of the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) Philip Barton said, “I am pleased to announce a further UK contribution of £3,000,000 or $3741285 to UNHCR, which will help to ensure refugees in Cox’s Bazar and Bhasan Char are able to access healthcare, clean water, hygiene and sanitation services, and cooking fuel.”

Mr. Philip Barton also said, “Six years since the atrocities of 2017, which forced Rohingya refugees into Bangladesh, the UK continues to stand with the Rohingya, Bangladesh, and all those affected by this crisis.”

Since 2017, the UK has provided £365 million (over 5,000 crore taka) to support the Rohingya and Bangladeshi host communities. This has included food, shelter, water, sanitation, healthcare, and protection services.

The UK expressed their promise to continue to push for a long-term solution that will enable the refugees to return to Myanmar on a safe, voluntary, and dignified basis, when the conditions there allow.
