The UK is a leading donor to the Rohingya response. We have provided over £45 million in humanitarian assistance in Myanmar and £391 million in Bangladesh to the Rohingya since 2017. We are the largest donor of water, hygiene, and sanitation facilities in the Internally Displaced Persons camps in central Rakhine State. Despite escalating conflict and ongoing access challenges, we are supporting those most in need through agile local partners. Minister Trevelyan announced a further £12 million and discussed education, training, and employment for the Rohingya with Prime Minister Hasina during her recent visit to Bangladesh on 7-8 May.
