Description : “It was a carefree life. I used to go to school and had friends to play with. But everything changed when we moved here. I have to help my family. On food distribution days, I go along with my father as he is old and can’t manage everything on his own. I fetch water every day, standing in the queue for hours just to get two pails.”

ICRC website, 06.07.2018, Photo gallery: “Ten months into the Rakhine crisis, hundreds and thousands of displaced people from Myanmar continue to live in teeming makeshift settlements in Cox's Bazar. It's the same tale everywhere – families were forced to leave a place they called home to flee the violence and save their lives. The journey to neighbouring Bangladesh was risky and full of difficulties. But that was their only safe option.
The need for aid remains overwhelming in the camps of Cox's Bazar. Adding to people's worries is the monsoon season that threatens to bring in floods and landslides. Though the basic needs of displaced families are being met by the authorities and aid agencies working on the ground such as the Bangladesh Red Crescent Society, it's the uncertain future that haunts them the most.”
