RAPPEL DU CONTEXTE DE LA ZONE D’INTERVENTION
Since 25 August 2017, an estimated 655,000 Rohingya have crossed into Bangladesh fleeing violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine State, increasing the total Rohingya population in Cox’s Bazar to 867,000. New arrivals are living in spontaneous settlements with increasing need of humanitarian assistance, including improved shelter, food, clean water, and sanitation.
Bangladeshi host communities
Almost 6 months after the first arrivals, some 700,000 Rohingya have now sought refuge in Bangladesh. After the emergency, the time has come to consolidate this aid, which must not leave anyone behind.
They arrived in hundreds, thousands and then hundreds of thousands. Over the past 7 months, nearly 700,000 Rohingya have left their villages and homes in Burma to try to find some peace in Bangladesh. They have settled in official camps, informal settlements or villages willing to welcome them in return for rent, most of which they can’t afford.
