The UK has been a leading donor in responding to the Rohingya crisis; since August 2017 we have committed £129m. The needs of women and girls are a key consideration of all our programming

This support has already delivered toilets and hygiene facilities for over one million people and emergency latrines for over 280,000 people. This includes the construction of 53 latrines and bathing spaces that are segregated for women and girls and have lights installed for their safety. Recent allocations to partners, including Christian Aid, UNICEF and UNHCR, will support additional latrines, tube wells, water points and bathing cubicles and 14 women friendly spaces with washing and sanitation facilities.
