-
Refugees said that more than 200 houses were burnt to ashes in the Rohingya refugee camp in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, on May 24, leaving nearly 500 people homeless.

Ko Khin Maung, Director of the Rohingya Youth Association of Bangladesh's Sanghali Refugee Camp, said that although no one was hurt by the fire, nearly five hundred people were displaced.

"No people were affected. Starting at No. 13, I heard that more than 200 houses were destroyed, and nearly 500 people became homeless."

Ko Khin Maung also said that the exact cause of the fire is still unknown. He said that non-governmental NGO organizations are providing assistance to those whose houses have been damaged, and there are also those who are temporarily staying at the homes of close relatives.

On January 7th, Rohingya refugee camp No. 5 in Cox's Bazar caught fire, destroying 950 houses and leaving more than 7,000 people homeless.

Cox's Bazar is home to millions of Rohingya who fled Myanmar to Bangladesh and is the world's largest refugee camp. In that refugee camp, there were frequent fires because they lived in groups among the huts.

More than half a million people in Rakhine state lost health care

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) announced on May 23 that 1.6 million people in the central and northern parts of Rakhine state do not have access to hospital health care.

It is also said that due to the hot weather, drinking water is scarce and diarrheal diseases are widespread.

The humanitarian situation in Rakhine State is particularly alarming with intense fighting and ethnic tensions, and despite the great need, there are still restrictions on movement.

UNOCHA said that in the first quarter of this year, aid was provided to nearly one million people, but there are still many difficulties and insufficient funding. The 2024 Seven Humanitarian Needs and Response Action Plan has only received 10 percent of the required funding, he said.
