Japan has decided to extend emergency support of about 1 million US dollars to those affected by the fire in ‘Rohingya’ camps in Cox’s Bazar.

The fund will be provided through Japan Platform, which is an international emergency humanitarian aid organisation.

This support will include health and medical care, food assistance, water and sanitation assistance and shelter assistance, said the Embassy of Japan in Dhaka on Thursday.

With extending this assistance, Japan has contributed 156 million US dollars in total to humanitarian assistance in Cox’s Bazar since August 2017.
