The United States Agency for International Development has provided an additional US$4.2 million for those displaced by the conflict in Rakhine State, the US Embassy said yesterday.
This assistance is provided by USAID’s Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance and Food for Peace through the United Nations World Food Program and Save the Children.
The assistance will be provided to those in need in Rakhine State regardless of ethnicity, the embassy said. The US has provided a total of US$7.29 million for the victims of the violence in Rakhine State since last June.
