The government of Japan has decided to provide approximately US$ 32.5 million as additional new money to support Rohingyas and host communities in Cox’s Bazar.
Since the massive influx of Rohingyas into Bangladesh in August 2017, the government of Japan had granted approximately US$ 50.2 million to international organisations.
With this additional support, the total amount of assistance has reached a total of approximately US$ 82.7 million, said the Japanese Embassy in Dhaka on Tuesday.
The government of Japan will extend the humanitarian assistance for Rohingyas and host communities in Cox’s Bazar through site management of camps, providing food, shelter, medical services and trainings, and wash facilities and forest regeneration through a number of international organisations.
