The Rohingya Camp


Children Of The Rohingya Camp Near The Bangladesh Border

It was a sunny day when I was moving around at The Rohingya Camp of Moinar Guna,Palongkhali in Ukhiya. Right now though, most of the forest areas has been cut off for making refugee camps. The area is a bit hilly and just beside the sea shore so the weather condition is unpredictable.  I saw a smiling cute looking face, staring at me underneath a shade. He is just three years old kid named Hasan and wore a red t-shirt. My camera couldn’t stop to click his smiley face and I missed the perfect moment. Because it’s really hard to find a happy face in this devastating situation of Rohinga Refugee camp. So I was moved for capturing certain happy faces. It was truly heartbreaking to see all these refugee people in the camp.

An ethnic minority group of people “Rohingya” is now a real crisis of our country. It is a story of misery, suffering, trauma, pain, magnitude and many other you may add.  It is hard to believe and see these people in front of my own eyes and hear their stories and capture photos. I am fortunate to work with TIKA (Turkish cooperation and coordination agency) for a couple of days to serve cooked food to the Rohingya children. Around twenty thousand hungry children are coming every day to collect the meal with their plates and pots. We have been instructed for a chaotic situation like this to handle all these children to serve in a controlled way so that no one is deprived.

According to UNICEF more than 340 thousand children have fled the violence in Myanmar over the past couple of months. They are now living in squalid conditions in refugee camps in Bangladesh. Among them 16,965 children are mostly affected by malnutrition. An estimated one in five children under the age of five is malnourished. Many of the children are alone, starving, in need of medical attention and at risk of being captured and thrown into human trafficking. It is a catastrophic situation they have been facing all these days in Rakhine region, the northern part of Burma.

I am showing you all a glimpse of Rohingya refugee children hoping for their better life. Presenting A photo story captured while I was moving around in these Refugee camps area.

Mohammad Hassan, only three years old, when I was looking at this innocent cheerful face I just remember my same aged nephew. It was extremely hot up on the hill and this baby was smiling that nothing had happened with them. He doesn’t know what is going on and what is his future?

After a long waiting under the sun hit the Rohingya children get their chances to collect their lunch. They take this food home and share with their family members

All the kids should be in a queue otherwise you will not get the food and these words using every day’s jingle for us in a native language. This girl is awaiting for her food in a queue with pleasure
