“It is vital that we get full rations back on track as soon as possible,” said Dom Scalpelli, WFP Country Director for Bangladesh. “Doing so will not only address the immediate crisis, but also ease the pressure on other vital programmes such as protection, health, education, shelter, cooking gas – many of which are now facing severe funding cuts.”

To escape hardships in the camps, about 4,500 Rohingya risked their lives at sea in 2023, with about 569 of them dying or going missing during the journey – the most since 2014. In the camps, the security situation has worsened. In recent months, violent incidents have occurred almost every day in the camps, with alleged kidnappings and forced recruitment of men by military groups a major concern.
