“Usual seasonal changes are becoming threats for the Rohingya as the shelters are not enough strong to protect the Rohingya,” explains a Rohingya from the same area.

Earlier similar thunderbolt incidents have taken lives of many uncountable Rohingya and they believe these sorts of avoidable deaths and injuries can be ceased if proper measures and protection are given to the suffering Rohingya.
