The UK is providing £250,000 of humanitarian support to communities affected by large-scale flooding in Bangladesh’s Chittagong Division. 

This will deliver vital assistance to over 18,000 people affected by flooding in Bandarban, Rangamati, and Cox’s Bazar districts, the British High Commission Dhaka said.

"The UK stands with all those affected by the devastating flooding in eastern Bangladesh. I am pleased to announce the UK is providing £250,000 of humanitarian assistance to respond to urgent needs," British High Commissioner to Bangladesh, Sarah Cooke, said.

"This support will provide essential relief items, including food, clean water, sanitation and hygiene kits, shelter materials and cash transfers to more than 18,000 people who have been affected. This complements the Government of Bangladesh’s response and builds on the UK’s longstanding support to disaster preparedness and response in Bangladesh,” she added.

The amount will be allocated by Start Fund Bangladesh, working with Caritas Bangladesh and Action Aid Bangladesh.
