  • Registration, including birth registration, for all refugees is critical. UNHCR’s family counting exercise which began on 3 October has now been completed. UNHCR teams continue to count new arrivals and update the data for families who may move within settlements. In parallel, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) is conducting biometrics registration for some 830,000 individuals, including new arrivals. UNHCR will work jointly with authorities to update data records and share with the authorities complementary data which UNHCR gathered on the location of individuals and on family composition. This is expected to result in good data set that will enable UNHCR and the authorities to better plan together, with other partners.

  • Roya, 20, an Afghan refugee, works in a tailoring workshop in Sarvestan refugee settlement, in Iran’s southern Fars province, along with around 50 other refugee women. The workshop was established by UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, and later expanded by the World Food Programme (WFP). It switched its production line at the start of the pandemic to make hygiene masks, in an example of refugees’ direct involvement in the fight against COVID-19, but also of their effort to safeguard their monthly income. Since February 2020, when the first COVID-19 cases were officially recorded in Iran, Roya and her fellow refugee tailors have produced more than 10,000 masks per day, which are delivered to health and humanitarian service providers across the country.

  • Since Sunday night, an estimated 10,000 to 15,000 Rohingya refugees have entered Bangladesh through the Anjuman Para border crossing point in Ukhia district in the country’s south-east.

The refugees UNHCR staff spoke to yesterday described walking for around a week to reach the Bangladesh border. Some crossed into the country on Sunday night, others throughout Monday in the heat and rain.
