The Government of Japan has decided to extend Emergency Grant Aid of 10 million US dollars for the displaced "Rohingya" and host communities of Cox's Bazar on 9 March.
This Emergency Grant Aid is to provide 5 million US dollars to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), 4.3 million US dollars to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), and 0.7 million US dollars to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) for humanitarian assistance.
It is expected to contribute to support the displaced Rohingya living in the severe humanitarian situation as well as 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 Rohingya and host communities, and provision of medical and sanitation equipment to nine hospitals and three health facilities.
