Rohingya Refugees

The Rohingya are Myanmar’s Muslim ethnic minority from Rakhine State and considered to be world’s one of the most persecuted communities. Since the 1970s the Myanmar military started a systematic ethnic cleansing campaign against them by killing, rape, arson. The recent military crackdown in 2017 has pushed nearly a million Rohingyas to cross the border of Myanmar in search for a safe refuge in Bangladesh and it has become “world’s fastest growing refugee crisis” according to UN. The Rohingya refugees have taken shelter in the different makeshift camps in Cox’s Bazar Bangladesh. The living condition in the refugee camps is awfully poor. They are facing a hardship on daily basis in terms of access to clean water, sufficient food, proper medical care, standard sanitation facilities, etc.
