Rohingya women need $72m in aid: Oxfam

MNA Exclusive Desk: Oxfam has said $72 million is required for humanitarian programs designed to aid the Rohingya women and children currently living in Cox’s Bazar’s refugee camps.

It said the Rohingya women have been developing health problems, missing out on aid, and are at a greater risk of abuse due to unsafe and unsuitable facilities—in many parts of the camps.

Speakers made the assessment at an Oxfam report launch on Monday. “One Year On: Time To Put Women and Girls At The Heart Of The Rohingya Response,” was launched at the Raowa Complex in Dhaka.

State Minister for Foreign Affairs Shahriar Alam was present as the guest of honour.
