A humanitarian tragedy

According to the UN, more than half a million people belonging to the Muslim Rohingya minority have fled from the northern Myanmar province of Rahkhine. There are reports of armed violence and torched villages.

Many Rohingya are injured or badly traumatized and countless families have been torn apart. After a gruelling flight they have found shelter in Bangladesh, many of them in overcrowded refugee camps. There is a lack of even the most basic essentials such as food and water. Most people have no access to accommodation or sanitation.
