STORYLINE
UN humanitarian chief Mark Lowcock today (02 Oct) visited the Balukhali makeshift settlement camp, in Bangladesh, where for Rohingya refugees have arrived in massive numbers in recent days.

Lowcock is on a three-day mission in Bangladesh, during which he will also visit Cox’s Bazar. The purpose of the joint mission is to see, first-hand, the devastating humanitarian situation of the Rohingya refugees.

Since late August, more than 500,000 Rohingya refugees, among them 60 per cent children, have arrived in Cox’s Bazar alone, marking the largest mass refugee movement in the region in decades.

In Bangladesh, the total number of Rohingya refugees is now estimated to be well over 700,000 people.

The scale of the emergency has far surpassed initial projections.

The initial response plan, launched on 7 September, sought US$77 million to assist 300,000 people. As of 29 September, the plan has received $36.4 million, or 47 per cent, of the funding requirements for the coordinated response.

Humanitarian partners are now revising the initial plan to account for the massive additional needs.
