Mrauk-U (Fatthar Killa), Arakan– On 20th October 2014 afternoon, a team of ICRC (International Committee of Red Cross) arrived at a Rohingya village called Bolti Fara (Payein) in Mrauk-U township. They treated five to six patients but left without treating many patients few hours later.

A team of ICRC (International Committee of Red Cross) arrived at a Rohingya village called Bolti Fara (Payein) in Mrauk-U township on 20th October 2014 afternoon. They treated five to six patients. However, after few hours, when many other patients arrived at the village, the team left without curing the patients. We wonder why they left without treating the patients” said a local from Mrauk-U township.
“Ethnic Rohingyas in Mrauk-U township are suffering from either of following diseases. (Diseases mentioned in percentage.)
1) High Blood Pressure (Approx 40%)
2) Gastrointestinal Diseases (Approx 24)
3) Cardiovascular Diseases (Approx 14)
4) Diabetes Mellitus (Approx 14)
5) Diarrhea, fever, malaria and other diseases. (Approx 8%)
We have been blcoked here since 2012. Our access to livelihoods and medical treatments have been cut off. There are no aid workers or INGOs here. We are in grave trouble” he added.
