New Zealand Red Cross aid workers are helping those affected by the biggest humanitarian crisis in the world right now – the influx of people into Bangladesh from neighbouring Myanmar.
More than 600,000 people have fled violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine state since 25 August, joining another 200,000 who fled earlier. The arrival of so many people in such a short time has seriously strained resources and infrastructure in the Cox’s Bazar area, where authorities are trying to set up new camps to house the displaced people.
