Moreover, due to the long term queue for collecting water throughout the entire night, almost all working Rohingya have to join their duty since early morning without a wink of sleep.

Likewise, a Rohingya from refugee camp was describing their problems that, first of all, they are battling with various kind of difficulties along with diseases and infections. On the other hand are the ration distributors who are seen to be giving the half amount of rations, compelling them to do jobs outside.
