UNHCR announced the International donors’ pledge of $600 million funding for the Rohingya crisis on Thursday.
The international community has demonstrated its firm commitment to the humanitarian response, Through this declaration.
On Thursday, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the United Kingdom, the United States and the European Union (EU) pledged to provide the $600 million for the Rohingya crisis as humanitarian assistance to many countries and organizations around the world.
In August 2017, more than 1 million Rohingya fled acrosses the border and took refuge in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, following the start of military violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine state.
Cox’s Bazar is now the largest refugee center in the world with more than 0.4 million Rohingyas already seeking refuge.
Since the violence began in August 2017, various international organizations and countries, including the United Nations, have provided a total of about $2.8 billion to Myanmar, Bangladesh and the region to address the Rohingya crisis.
This financial assistance has been provided beyond the $ 700 million development commitment received from the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank in Bangladesh.
The conference was organized to raise $ 1 billion for 2020 to help displaced Myanmar refugees in the Cox’s Bazar refugee camp in Bangladesh, but less than half of it was raised.
Voluntary, safe, dignified and sustainable repatriation of Rohingya refugees and other internally displaced persons to Myanmar or places of their choice is the complete solution, which the Rohingya people, as well as the international community, want.
