The United Kingdom will give an additional 87 million pounds for sustaining the Rohingya operation in Cox's Bazar, lifting their contribution to a total of 226 million pounds since the start of the Rohingya crisis in August 2017. 

The additional funding will help provide food, healthcare, water, sanitation, care and counselling for sexual violence survivors, and protection for vulnerable groups.

Over 20 million pounds is being made available to support development in the Cox’s Bazar to mitigate the economic and environmental impact the Rohingya crisis is having on the local communities.
The UK said it is working to ensure that the international response benefits all the population in the district, according to British High Commission in Dhaka.
