more £12m Uk aid for Rohingyas
DHAKA, Nov 27, 2017 – The United Kingdom (UK) has announced further aid of £12 million for the Rohingya people, who took shelter in Bangladesh, and urged other countries to come forward with more aid, saying that global funding for the Myanmar displaced citizens would start to dry up in 100 days.
International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt announced the aid today during her visit to Cox’s Bazar and warned that global funding would start to dry up in 100 days, according to a press release of British High Commission Dhaka issued here.
Announcing the aid, Mordaunt pledged that the UK would continue to stand by the Rohingya people and Bangladesh, the release said.
“The persistent persecution of the Rohingya people must stop. It is horrifying that hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women and children have had their homes burnt to the ground and parents have been forced to helplessly watch as their children die from hunger,” Mordaunt said.
