UK to give £30 million more aid for the Rohingya
Disaster Management and Relief Minister Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya has said that the United Kingdom (UK) will provide £30 million (about Tk328 crores) more aid for the Rohingya refugees sheltered in Bangladesh. "This aid would be in addition to the £59 lakh, which the UK earlier provided," he said after a view exchange meeting with a nine-member UK delegation led by two state ministers at his office in the Secretariat in Dhaka. The minister said the government would shift the Rohingya to Bhasan Char if their repatriation is delayed and Bangladesh Navy has been working to make the island liveable. During the meeting, State Minister for the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office Mark Field, State Minister of Foreign Aid Alistair Burt, Chief of South Asia of the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office John Virgoe, Acting British High Commissioner in Dhaka David Ashley and Chief of Political Department of the High Commission Paula Corrans along with team leader (Rohingya) of DFID and secretary of the ministry M Shah Kamal were present. They discussed the latest conditions of the Rohingya camps, including food, drinking water, registration process, housing and security. The UK state minister and other delegation members praised Bangladesh for giving shelter to a huge number of Rohingya, fleeing persecution in Myanmar's Rakhine State since August 25.
