International donors pledged nearly 600 million USD to support displaced Rohingyas in Bangladesh.
Reuters.com on Thursday (October 22) reported that Britain, the United States and European Union organized the virtual conference along with the United Nations Refugee Agency, aiming to meet a target of $1 billion in funding for 2020, less than half of which had been raised.
“The international community has demonstrated its strong commitment to the humanitarian response with its announcement of funding today totalling $597 million,” U.N High Commissioner Filippo Grandi said.
More than 1,100,000 Rohingyas are now living in 34 camps in Ukhiya and Teknaf of Cox’s Bazar.
