Squalid conditions for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh

A Rohingya woman collecting water from a hole many households use for washing, drinking, cooking & bathing in the Balukhali camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. This is not a new settlement although it is not an official camp & most residents do not receive UNHCR assistance. This is the state of humanitarian aid before the influx of 420,000 new refugees. Will anyone be surprised when a cholera epidemic is announced?

Stand with the Rohingya by demanding humanitarian aid & refugee rights to asylum wherever they choose.
