Nr. Teknaf, Cox's Bazar, BANGLADESH

Outside the unofficial refugee camp of Dum Dum Meah near Teknaf in Bangladesh, Rohingya refugees wait for water. The camp houses some 6,000 Rohingya refugees (Muslims from Burma) who squat beside the road in some of the worst conditions of any refugees in the world. They are persecuted by the Burmese junta at home and are not recognised as refugees by the Bangladeshi authorities. Apart from Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) Holland they receive no outside assistance. Many of the children are under nourished and there are sever problems due to poor sanitation and unclean water. The situation is exacerbated during the Monsoon when the Naff river floods its banks and the camp's shacks that lie between the road and the river become flooded.
