The government of Dhaka, Bangladesh, has opened its doors to more than 520,000 Rohingya refugees, who are escaping the violence in Myanmar. Of these, more than 70,000 live in the Ukhiya refugee camp in the south of the country. Caritas helps these people, thanks to the World Food Program.
Gervas Rozario, vice president of the Bishops’ Conference of Bangladesh, has visited the refugee camp, “Their situation is terrible, in particular that of women and children, who are the most vulnerable. They need food, basic necessities, places to sleep and medicine.”
