The government of Denmark has allocated Tk25.6 crore to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) as aid for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, who recently fled the violence in Myanmar, reports BSS. Danish Minister for Development Cooperation Ulla Tornaes said in an official statement: “I am very concerned about the situation in Rakhine and I condemn any violence against civilians.” “I strongly urge the involved parties to ensure the protection of Rohingyas as well as other civilians and appeal to ensure humanitarian access to the thousands of people that need urgent assistance," the minister said. "Denmark stands ready with immediate financial support when our international humanitarian partners can provide assistance to all indigent people in Rakhine,” she added. “Meanwhile, we are strengthening our support to the refugees in Bangladesh. The efforts from Bangladeshi authorities have been crucial in supporting the stranded refugees," she further said.
