South Korea has pledged to provide $2 lakh as emergency humanitarian aid and relief for flood-hit people in Bangladesh.
South Korean Ambassador to Bangladesh Ahn Seong-doo made the announcement yesterday, said a statement.
The donation will be provided to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and Bangladesh Red Crescent Society focusing on health, shelter, water, sanitation, food and livelihood.
Korea International Cooperation Agency has been supporting IFRC in disaster risk management since 2015 under a “Community-based disaster risk reduction project: enhanced community resilience to floods in Bangladesh” with a budget of $10 lakh.
“South Korea's relief effort will...further strengthen the bilateral relationship,” says the statement.
