Bangladesh: UN Assists Monsoon Victims In Cox's Bazar

Monsoon rains affect 16,190 individuals from 4,842 households, causes partial damage to 427 shelters.

The UN agencies and NGOs along with the Bangladesh government are straggling to assist displaced Rohingya refugees and host community in Cox's Bazar as severe rain hit the areas.
Around 25 wind and rainstorms and 5 flooding incidents caused temporary displacement of 14,801 individuals from 4,543 households and partial damage to 427 shelters and complete destruction of 66 shelters.
Besides, an estimated 16,190 individuals from 4,842 households have been affected by the flooding started since last Saturday, read a joint statement of Inter Sector Coordination Group (ISCG) partners – UN agencies including IOM, UNHCR and WFP.
In the Teknaf area of Cox's Bazar, two Bangladeshi children have reportedly been killed and ten people injured following a landslide.
On Tuesday, approximately 4,000 households were displaced due to rainfall in Camp-26 alone in the Teknaf area of Cox's Bazar. Some were relocated on an emergency basis, it added.
"The rain and wind are endangering lives and causing hardship on the ground, and our teams are working around the clock to provide emergency services, repairs and relocations," said IOM Bangladesh Deputy Chief of Mission Manuel Pereira.
UNHCR is working closely with partners and local authorities, said UNHCR Head in Cox's Bazar, Marin Din Kajdomcaj, while the WFP emergency coordinator said: "it is well prepared for emergency situations."
"Funding is still urgently needed…. Only 38 percent of the response is funded, compromising essential services and the health and wellbeing of both the Rohingya and host community population," said Nicole Epting, ISCG Senior Coordinator. -
