Immediately, the US, by way of the U.S. Company for Worldwide Growth and the U.S. State Division, introduced greater than $170 million in extra humanitarian help for susceptible populations in Burma and Bangladesh, together with help for Rohingya who stay in Burma, Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, their beneficiant Bangladeshi host communities, and different communities affected by the 2021 coup in Burma and the escalating battle and repression that has adopted. This extra funding brings the full U.S. humanitarian help for these populations to just about $1.9 billion because it started in August 2017.
