US gives additional $32m aid for Rohingyas

MNA International Desk: The United States is providing an additional nearly $32 million in humanitarian assistance to address the urgent needs of Rohingya fleeing violence in Rakhine State of Myanmar to Bangladesh, as well as internally displaced persons in Rakhine State, and host communities in Bangladesh.

The United States announced this support during the 72nd Session of the UN General Assembly in New York, reports news agency.

Among other priorities, one of the primary themes of this year’s General Assembly is bolstering support for humanitarian assistance to ongoing emergencies, in particular for refugees and the communities that host them.

The new funding brings US humanitarian assistance to internally displaced persons in Myanmar and refugees from the country in the region to nearly $95 million in FY 2017, and it reflects the US commitment to help address the unprecedented magnitude of suffering and urgent humanitarian needs of the Rohingya people.
