The UK is a leading donor to the Rohingya refugee response in Bangladesh. We estimate that UK-funded assistance provided since August 2017 has reached most of the 1.3 million refugees and vulnerable host community members targeted by the international humanitarian Joint Response Plan. Our aid is making a significant difference to the lives of the refugees and we are providing assistance in all major sectors, including food security and nutrition, shelter, health, protection (including gender-based violence), site management, water, hygiene promotion and sanitation.
