Excessive heat along with water crisis makes Rohingya Refugees’ life unbearable

Mishal,Staff Reporter|RNTv

Bangladesh has been experiencing the heat of April tremendously. It has badly affected Rohingyas at camps in Ukhiya, Cox’s Bazar. On top of that due to the extreme water crisis life has become almost unbearable in Rohingya camps.

Meanwhile, 85 percent of the camp’s tubewell has been out of order. As the temperature rises, the water level goes down, water is available only in some tube wells. This little water does not meet the needs of everyone. As a result, there has been created a severe crisis of drinking water in Ukhiya’s Rohingya camps.

These images are vivid in Madhursara, Lombashia, Moynarghuna, Tajnimarkhola camps in Ukhiya. Due to excessive heat at Kutupalong Lombashia camp, it has become troublesome to stay in the polythene tents.

A Rohingya representative, Hamid Hossain said that there was no water in the tube well in their camp. Many people are quenching their thirst buying bottled water from the market.
