Japan has contributed $155 million to the humanitarian assistance in Cox’s Bazar, where the forcibly displaced Rohingyas have taken refuge, since August 2017

The Japanese government has decided to extend an emergency aid of $10 million for the displaced Rohingyas and the host community in Bangladesh.

The decision of providing the grant for humanitarian assistance came on March 9, according to a press release issued by the Japan Embassy in Dhaka on Thursday.

Of this aid, $5 million will go to the UN World Food Programme (WFP), $4.3 million to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), and $700,000 to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

The aid is expected to contribute support for the displaced Rohingyas and the host communities in Cox’s Bazar in the areas of food distribution to approximately 345,000 people, rehabilitation of the shelters of approximately 14,000 people, and provision of medical and sanitation equipment to nine hospitals and three health facilities, the release read.

Since the Rohingya crisis began in August 2017, Japan has contributed $155 million in total to the humanitarian assistance in Cox’s Bazar, where the forcefully displaced Rohingyas have taken refuge.
