FCO and DFID staff monitor the humanitarian situation in Rakhine State closely and visit frequently. Whilst there have been improvements to humanitarian operations following the severe disruptions caused by attacks on UN and international NGO premises in March, many vulnerable communities, including the Rohingya, remain under-served. The UK is providing bilateral humanitarian support in Rakhine to all communities affected by the humanitarian situation there, as well as support through core contributions to multilateral agencies.
