||<p>We remain concerned by the risk of violence to Rohingya children in Bangladesh.
Of our latest £70m funding to the Rohingya crisis, up to 18% is devoted to protection
of rights for refugees, including prevention and monitoring of exploitation and abuse,
support to survivors of sexual and gender based violence and strong safeguarding and
referral practices by service providers in the camps. This includes: 30 child friendly
spaces to support children with protective services and psychosocial and psychological
support; child protection monitoring systems in camps; and support to survivors of
violence and trafficking. We have funded improved camp lighting to help keep the most
vulnerable Rohingya safer. DFID conducts thorough due diligence processes with all
funding and will only work with partners with strong safeguards in place.</p><p> </p><p>Approximately
600,000 Rohingya, including children, are still in Rakhine State and are vulnerable.
The UK supports agencies that have access to those that remain, such as International
Committee of the Red Cross. The UK continues to press for unhindered humanitarian
access to Rakhine State.</p>
