Project Data Last Updated: 19/12/2019

IATI Identifier: GB-1-205268

Description

The project aims to address the ongoing needs of over 800000 Rohingya refugees, who were displaced by the Myanmar military in August 2017. UK support provides food aid to around one million of them since the influx in August 2017, improved shelter for 400,000 families and clean water and sanitation for over 300,000 people. They also get cooking gas to stop the destruction of forest for firewood. Over 500,000 people will also be supported for sexual and reproductive health and over one million people with other health services. The vulnerable Bangladeshi communities, who host them will also get support. Thus, both groups will lead more fulfilling and meaningful lives. The project will also strengthen disaster preparedness and help to reduce the cost for disaster response through a joint UN and civil-society programme. Around 500,000 people will get timely and cost-effective aid following disasters.
