Flash Floods Leave Rohingya Refugees In Disaster
Fuel for Medical Centre
Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh has been home to Rohingya Refugees since 2017. The region has provided refuge to thousands of Rohingya families facing displacement, poverty, and food insecurity. Unfortunately, this haven has been struck with incessant rains and flash floods.
The Rohingya community has already faced enough adversity as they moved from Myanmar to Bangladesh. And now they are left untethered and unsheltered yet again.
The showers lasted for 24 hours, and the 300 mm of rain broke the record for the last two decades. These heavy rains led to ravaging floods within a few hours, washing away more than 3800 refugee camps.
Landslides and flash floods have forced 13000 individuals to relocate to the nearest safe spots with minimal possessions. It has also stranded more than 200,000 people without a roof atop their heads, without food, water, and necessities like toilets and medical attention
