U.N.’s IOM Continues To Provide WASH Services To Rohingya Refugees In Bangladesh

International Organization for Migration: Clean Water, Sanitation Vast Challenges as Bangladesh Copes with 607,000 New Refugees
“…IOM, the U.N. Migration Agency, is providing vital WASH services to both the Rohingya and the communities hosting them, while scaling up its work to meet the needs of new arrivals. In total, some 100,000 people already directly benefit from IOM’s WASH activities in the makeshift settlements [in Cox’s Bazar]. … Although, many thousands of refugees now have access to water and sanitation, far more remains to be done to prevent disease outbreaks. Poor road access and insufficient drainage in the displacement sites also make it difficult to reach new arrivals with the urgent support and services they need, including WASH” (10/31).
