Relief groups voice concerns over reduction in food aids provided to Rohingya refugees

Relief agencies and groups have warned that increasing reduction in food rations is endangering lives of over one million Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.

The warning came yesterday, Thursday, following a statement by the UN World Food Programme (WFP) to further reduce food rations provided to Rohingya Muslim refugees in Bangladesh’s camps.

The WFP has reduced food assistance to $8 per month since the beginning of June.

This new reduction is the second since the organization first reduced aids from $12 to $10 per month in March.

Amongst the groups that have raised an alert over this issue are: the Norwegian Refugee Council, Save the Children, Plan International, and others.
