ANOTHER CALAMITY HAS BEFALLEN THE ROHINGYA

A raging fire has burnt more than 800 shelters home to more than 4,000 people in the Rohingya Camps in Bangladesh


Rohingya refugees need immediate attention and here is why

The total number of Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazar is around 869,000 individuals. The Rohingya refugee population is concentrated in extremely congested camps within Ukhyia and Teknaf Upazilas of Cox’s Bazar District, Bangladesh.

The refugees living in the camps are dependent on the assistance provided by the humanitarian community and government of Bangladesh.

In the early hours of Thursday 14th January 2021, more than 800 makeshift shelters were destroyed in a raging fire. Unfortunately, a similar situation arose in May 2020 last year when a similar fire ripped through the Rohingya camps destroying more than 670 shelters.

Due to the congested nature of the camps and high population, a fire can spread rapidly and quickly within seconds and it only adds to the woes and miseries of the Rohingya families, many of whom once again find themselves homeless and have lost everything they had.
