Korea provides additional $1.4m for Rohingyas
Korea will provide an additional humanitarian aid of US $1.4 million for Rohingyas who moved to Bangladesh after the armed clashes in Rakhine State of Myanmar.
The Korean government's contribution will be delivered through multilateral channels like the UN Children's Fund (Unicef) and the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), said a press release yesterday.
Previously in 2017, the South Korean government contributed a combined total of US $2 million to the International Organization for Migration (IOM)'s emergency aid operation and to the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) to support Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.
The Korean government expects that its donation will help alleviate sufferings and improve living conditions of the Rohingya people.
