report Oxfam

Rohingya women living in Bangladesh are developing health problems, missing out on aid and are at greater risk of abuse due to unsafe and unsuitable facilities in many parts of the refugee camps, Oxfam warned today.

The international agency called for 15 per cent of new funding to be set aside for humanitarian programmes designed to better support women and girls – including $72 million [£56m] of the nearly half a billion dollars recently committed by the World Bank. Currently, there is no standalone budget for meeting women’s specific needs in the overall emergency response.
