To ask Her Majesty's Government what (1) action they are taking, and (2) funding they are designating, to protect Rohingya women in refugee camps with specific reference to (a) improving lighting for safety, (b) toilets and washrooms that provide privacy, and (c) special assistance for the most vulnerable.
DFID is supporting a range of organisations providing specialised help to women amongst Rohingya refugees and host communities in Bangladesh. A third of our latest £70m allocation will be spent on protection services including services for women and girls, and sexual and reproductive health. This includes funding for women’s centres, emergency nutrition and midwifery care to pregnant women, and support for survivors of gender based violence. Our funding is improving lighting for safety in the camps. We are supporting provision of women friendly spaces that include toilets and washrooms with privacy. We are also providing psychosocial first aid to vulnerable adults and adolescents to ease trauma, and child friendly spaces.
