Rohingya refugees are trying to resume their normal activities following the wave of fires that caused chaos in this camp. There were three fires in only four days.

The last one left 15 people dead and 300 missing. It destroyed the shelters of 50,000 people.

“Families were separated, some children are still looking for their parents. This is a very difficult situation.”

In the Cox region of Bangladesh, there are more than 800,000 Rohingya. Most of them arrived in 2017, in an effort to escape repression under the government of Myanmar. They live in inhumane conditions.

They're crowded in one of the world's largest refugee camps, and the government of Bangladesh is struggling to address this migration crisis.

In fact, they are looking into a possible, but polemical, solution: moving 100,000 refugees to an island with enough space, but with terrible climate conditions.

Pope Francis has been following the situation closely, even visiting in 2017. In his latest book, “Let Us Dream,” he called the Rohingya the most persecuted people on earth.
