Monsoon floods: assisting refugees in Bangladesh’s Rohingya camps

Since escaping genocide in Rakhine, almost 900,000 Rohingya refugees have been settled by the Bangladesh government in Teknaf and Ukhiya sub-districts of Cox’s Bazar.

These camps – spanning an area of about 26 square kilometres – are not just the largest in the world; they are also one of the most congested.

With support from the EU, humanitarian workers from the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) are assisting refugees on the ground, often in very challenging conditions.
