Rohingya food crisis: UN running out of funds for refugees in Bangladesh

Al Jazeera, 01 Jun 2023
Rohingya refugees living in overcrowded camps in Bangladesh already don't have enough to eat.
And it's likely to get worse.
The UN food agency says it doesn't have the money to pay for food supplies.

Starting from Thursday, monthly food rations will be reduced to 8 dollars per person.
The UN says it needs 56 million dollars to help Rohingya in Bangladesh.
The government is hosting more than a million of the minority Muslims who fled persecution in Myanmar.
It says the international community isn't doing enough to help.
