violence in mi myanmar. here is more about that now. this is 20 minutes. >> thank you very much, indeed. thank you for coming, everybody. we've had an encouraging morning with member states and a range of organizations where we've laid out the situation on the ground in bangladesh and asked for help from the international community. reenforcing the generosity and the hospitality and the extraordinary welcome bangladesh has offered to nearly 600,000 refugees who have fled from myanmar since the 25th of august. on the basis of what we've heard this morning, our assessment is that against the $434 million that we put out in the appeal response plan some weeks ago, we now have pledges of $340 million. so we're very encouraged by that. in addition, several donors have committed more than $50 million in in kind assistance to bangladesh and myanmar. we know that some of our donors, some of our very important donors are still working on pledges. so we're confident that beyond what i've said there will be more support to come. we're also very encouraged by the work that's being done by the world
