HRH Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark visits Rohingya refugees in Cox's Bazar

His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik visited the Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazar, on the 4th to 6th of April, to witness the work of Danish Red Cross, for whom he is a Patron.

The Crown Prince went to see women and child friendly spaces supported by Danish Red Cross and other Red Cross and Red Crescent organisations. He also visited health and water projects in the area. The latter, a small water treatment plant that can treat 600,000 litres per day for up to 40,000 people.

Additionally, Danish Red Cross has deployed a basecamp attached to the Red Cross Field Hospital in Kutapalong. Here, they serve more than 4000 meals weekly for patients and their relatives.

The Danish delegation included Secretary General for Danish Red Cross, Anders Ladekarl, and the Danish Ambassador to Bangladesh, Mikael H. Winther.

This is the second time His Royal Highness is visiting Bangladesh. In 2012, he went as Patron for Save the Children.
