Dirt Accumulation Increase Rohingya’s Misery in Makeshift Camps

By Rohingya Vision TV Correspondents | 20th November 2018

Cox’s Bazaar: Rohingya at a makeshift camp are suffering seriously due to the accumulated dirt in the gutters and have made the environment unbreathable for the Rohingya, reports a sufferer today (20th November 2018).

At Block B -12 and 15 of camp no. 13 in Tenghali, dirt from the lavatories have accumulated in the open gutters, for which the sheltering Rohingya are unable to take breathe and are being infected with various types of diseases.

The real factor of the accumulation is the narrowness of the gutter width and the lack of regular cleaning process.

These unhealthy and unhygienic conditions in the makeshift camps have worsened the living condition of the Rohingya, who are almost lingering with all basic human needs.

Similar conditions were also reported from Block B-19 of the same camp, making the Rohingya suffer in a worse level.

Although locals have tried to contact the authorities and INGO’s working in the field, none authorities have been seen yet in any action to combat the situation.

Since late 2016, 1.3 million Rohingya are sheltering at makeshift camps of Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh and are usually seen in fighting for day to day need, after fleeing a deadly genocidal attack in their homeland.
