Fleeing persecution by the Myanmar military, more than half a million Rohingya have fled into neighbouring Bangladesh.

Now, the international community is rallying round.

Delegates have gathered at a funding conference at the UN in Geneva. A total of 344.7 million dollars has been pledged.

Several donors announced in-kind assistance worth more than 50 million dollars.

UNICEF had been asking for 434 million.

Simon Ingram from the organisation says they have not yet turned the corner.
