I was saddened to see the impact of Cyclone Mocha in Bangladesh. We continue to meet ongoing needs in the aftermath of the cyclone. The UK recently announced an additional £2.3 million in humanitarian support for the Rohingya refugees and host communities in Bangladesh.
This new funding will support the rebuilding of shelters destroyed by Cyclone Mocha and by the large fire in March this year. It will also provide healthcare, site management support, and strengthen safeguarding systems for Rohingya refugees and host communities.
The UK is the second largest donor to the crisis, providing £352 million since 2017. We will continue to support the Government of Bangladesh and the Rohingya people until they can return home in a safe, voluntary and dignified way.
