Cox’s Bazaar: Once again water shortage was spotted in a makeshift camp at Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh making lives of the suffering Rohingya to a worst level, reports a suffering Rohingya yesterday (21st February 2019).

In Tenghali makeshift camp long queue of water pots and vessels were seen under the hot naked sun. Due to the very long time of standing under the sun, Rohingya usually leaves their vessels in wait for their turn to fill it.

Those long queues start from early morning till late evening and the sheltering Rohingya are suffering at a worse level.

According to the sufferers, in case of emergency Rohingya men, women and children have to travel far in the hilly areas to fetch water.

They said they are in urgent need of more water supply in the area and even a simple task like water collection adds sufferings to their daily challenging lives in the makeshift camps.

Although international NGOs and much other organization are seen to actively helping the Rohingya, but tackling nearly 1.3 million Rohingya became an unrealistic goal for them as well.

The long water collection queues are a very common scene in many areas across the camps in Cox’s Bazaar and no clues of resolving the issue is seen to be possible to alleviate the Rohingya’s suffering to a minimum level.
