The Rohingya rely entirely on humanitarian assistance for protection, food, water, shelter and health. They live in temporary shelters in a highly congested camp setting in Cox’s Bazar, and on the island of Bhasan Char. With Bangladesh ranking third in the world among the States most hit by natural disasters, Rohingya refugees are highly exposed to weather-related hazards, such as cyclones, flooding and landslides.

UNHCR works to support the Government of Bangladesh to provide essential services and meet the protection needs of refugees, including special services for women, children and people with disabilities. UNHCR’s support is extended to host communities while continuously working towards solutions to ensure that refugees can return in a safe, dignified, voluntary and sustainable way once conditions in Myanmar allow.
