This rumour is confirmed true and is of high priority – here's why:
The UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, concluded his five-day visit to Myanmar on Friday, committing to continued UNHCR engagement to support displaced people and other affected communities, and help build the confidence that refugees from Myanmar currently in Bangladesh require for their voluntary and safe return.

In Maungdaw township, in the northern part of Rakhine State, Grandi traveled to a number of villages to listen to Rakhine, Rohingya and other communities speak of their challenges, needs and hopes. They also conveyed to him that projects in their villages, such as water reservoirs, school rehabilitation, road improvements, provision of bicycles and skills training are already making a difference in their lives.

These small projects are carried out by UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, and UNDP teams, under the tripartite Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed with the government of Myanmar in June 2018 and have the potential to help foster positive relations between communities.
