Rohingya refugee Halima Khatun (36) going shopping in Kutapalong Mega camp. However, landslides have made her trip more difficult than before as two bridges that connect Camp five and Camp six were washed away the night before due heavy rains. Halima and her two children need to cross a flooded canal to get to the closest market. Halima says she is also concerned for her husband who lost his leg in late Aug 2017 when Burmese soldiers opened fire on their village and he was shot in the leg.
In early July 2019, the monsoon rains arrived with four days of continuous rain that destroyed 273 shelters and injured 11 people in the Cox's Bazar refugee settlements, where more than 900,000 Rohingya are living.
