The German government has made a fresh contribution of US$4.5 million for the welfare of Rohingya families and their host communities in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.

With the latest, the German contribution to the Rohingyas now reached US$30 million since the onset of the refugee crisis in 2017, says a WFP statement on Wednesday.

“This contribution will support the Government of Bangladesh to meet its commitment to the forcibly displaced Myanmar nationals as well as their host communities in Cox’s Bazar. Lifesaving assistance is particularly important now with the ongoing pandemic and heavy monsoon rains, both of which are posing great risks to vulnerable families,” said Md. Mohsin, Secretary, Ministry of Disaster Management and Relief.
