An estimated 523,000 refugees have arrived in Bangladesh since violence broke out in Myanmar’s northern Rakhine state 23 August 2017. Care and Relief Foundation is gravely concerned about the continuing conflict in Myanmar and by reports that civilians have died trying to seek safety.
Those who have made it to Bangladesh are in poor condition. Most have walked for days from their villages – hiding in jungles, crossing mountains and rivers with what they could salvage from their homes. They are hungry, weak and sick. The new arrivals are scattered in different locations in south-eastern Bangladesh.
More than 300,000 Rohingya are estimated to have sought shelter in the existing refugee camps of Kutupalong and Nayapara. Many others are living in makeshift sites and local villages. There is an urgent need for additional emergency shelters and land as more refugees arrive. Soaked and hungry Rohingya refugees seek shelter in Bangladesh, care and relief foundation with the assistance of local government is providing Emergency Shelter Packs, Food and clean drinking water.
