Bangladesh - Myanmar
Flash flooding and abnormally heavy rainfall are bringing fresh disaster to thousands of Rohingya in Bangladesh and Myanmar, as well as causing devastation in Sylhet, Moulvibazar and neighbouring areas.
Over one million refugees are situated on the Bangladesh and Myanmar borders, having fled unimaginable violence and conflict, seeking shelter in the world’s biggest refugee camps.
Lives and shelters destroyed in Cox’s Bazaar.
In the last few weeks, the monsoon season has begun, wreaking havoc within the camps and damaging thousands of make-shift homes.
Over 5,000 temporary shelters have collapsed or been washed away, placing over 30,000 vulnerable people in immediate danger. So far, five lives have been claimed - these figures will rise as the rain continues to fall.
It is expected that the monsoon season will continue until July and the threat of landslides and spread of disease will only get worse.
Over 200,000 people are at immediate risk of losing their lives and homes.
