Even in blinding darkness, life will find a way.
Since violence broke out in Rakhine State in August 2017, more than 650,000 refugees have crossed the border Bangladesh-Myanmar border into Cox Bazar. Most of them have since been shifted away from roadsides into designated areas in places like Kutupalong, Balukhali, Tengkhali, and Nayapara, where they construct shelters with bamboo and plastic sheets. The government of Bangladesh continues to work closely with NGOs and humanitarian agencies in deploying assistance to these camps.
