TBS Report
24 February, 2024,

Legal experts say that the drive is illegal since Myanmar has refused to recognize the Rohingya as one of the country’s ethnic groups and denied them citizenship for decades

Rohingya Refugee Camps Are Being Set On Fire

By Jaishree Kumar

Several small fires have engulfed dozens of make-shift homes in Rohingya refugee camps in India and Bangladesh in the last two weeks and it is unclear who is causing them.

These incidents follow a large fire that broke out on March 22 in Bangladesh at Cox’s Bazar. The fire ravaged through 10,000 make-shift homes, killing at least 15 people and displacing 45,000. Investigations into the cause of that fire are still underway. The UN allocated $14 million dollars to help rehabilitate the refugees left homeless by the fire in the world’s largest refugee camp.

The experts called for an “impartial” investigation into the deaths of at least six Rohingya men in gunfights with police after they were named as suspects in the killing of Omar Faruk, a youth wing official of the ruling Awami League.

Rohingya camps and aid organisations are well-equipped to respond says UN
Efforts throughout 2018 and early 2019 have dramatically improved conditions in the Rohingya camps, and aid organisations are well-equipped to respond, UN agencies said.

However, there is still an emergency affecting vulnerable families living in a difficult, hazard-prone terrain, that requires ongoing support from the international community, and constant work by humanitarian actors, the UN agencies said on Monday, reports UNB.

The accidental city: For scores of Rohingya refugees, a safe camp is hardly a home

Nathan VanderKlippe Asia correspondent
Published May 11, 2019

Hundreds of thousands of refugees from Myanmar are busy setting up their lives in a corner of Bangladesh. They have escaped brutal repression and any talk of being repatriated is dismissed: the Rohingya simply do not trust the regime in the country they fled. But no one knows where they will settle for good, and finding hope for the future feels impossible for many. Photography by Mohammad Ponir Hossain .

Aid workers fear that Rohingya camps near Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, will become like a tiny, crowded Gaza: where refugees tainted by discontent and violence live within high fences indefinitely. MOHAMMAD PONIR HOSSAIN/The Globe and Mail

Rape, abuse, violence: Rohingya women and girls most vulnerable in refugee camps

Young mother Senoura is trying the best she can to make sure her baby is not malnourished. But with hardly any money, depending only on food rations, she is worried for her young one.
Every morning, 20-year-old Gulbahar rushes to finish her housework and cook for her family so she can spend more time at the Safe Space for Women and Girls, a women-only space supported by Unicef at the Kutupalong refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.

The safe space, she says, is more than just a respite from the harsh conditions in the camp (and the tiny shelter she lives in). In that female-only space, Gulbahar is being empowered and equipped with vocational skills that she never thought she’d have the chance to acquire.

On a recent morning, the Rohingya refugee leaned back on a plastic chair in the Bangladesh camp where he lives and translated the latest warning, sent over the WhatsApp messaging app.

For years, Bangladeshi schools have quietly admitted some of the Rohingya but the new influx has tested the hospitality of the Bangladeshi government.

COX'S BAZAR, Bangladesh, March 18 (Reuters) - Sixteen-year-old Kefayat Ullah walked to his school in southern Bangladesh in late January, as he had done most days for the previous six years, to find that - despite being one of the top students in his class - he had been expelled.
