- Will Rohingya Refugees Start Returning to Myanmar in 2018?
I’ve been here for ten days now. My baby is absolutely exhausted.” – A young Rohingya refugee mother at Cox’s Bazar
In Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh, hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees are living in very difficult conditions. Families do not have access to sufficient food. At the camp, our staff has opened two nutrition centres which are supervised by a doctor so that children suffering from malnutrition can be treated. Three others should open soon. At the centres, children receive high-protein food made from milk and peanut paste which quickly makes them feel better. Ivana Goretta, press attaché at Terre des hommes visited the site and shares her experiences here through photos.
In addition to being subjected to multiple natural disasters, Myanmar faces extreme poverty, 90% of the population living on less than one dollar a day. The inhabitants of rural areas are hit especially hard, and an exodus to the big cities is often the solution preferred. Many parents, confronted by destitution, believe they have no other choice than to abandon their children to cope by themselves. Obliged to quit school, these kids find themselves left to their own devices on the streets, forced to do odd jobs to meet their daily needs.
