South Korea to provide emergency support of $1m for Rohingyas affected by recent fire

South Korea will provide emergency support of $1 million for humanitarian activities in response to the massive fire that broke out recently at Rohingya refugee camps in Cox's Bazar.

The fund, which will be used by the International Organization of Migration, will help international humanitarian agencies' response and recovery activities benefit the most affected and rebuild shelters and living facilities, including LPG distribution, latrines, and bathing systems, said a statement of the South Korean Embassy in Dhaka today.

The fire that broke out on March 22 heavily damaged Camp 9, Camp 8E, and Camp 8W located in Kutupalong Balukhali with approximately 10,100 households destroyed and about 48,000 Rohingya refugees displaced.

Since the outbreak of the Rohingya refugee crisis in 2017, the Republic of Korea has been providing four to five million US dollars annually for humanitarian assistance to the Rohingyas and host community in Cox's Bazar.
