The UK is working closely with our partners to provide targeted protection services to Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, including through a network of local organisations which help people to access services in a language they can easily understand, including in local dialects. We are also providing translators where needed. Examples of the help being provided includes psychosocial and psychological support for 7,500 children, and supporting the Red Cross to provide family-linking and family-tracing services.
