Bangladesh: a refugee camp for refugees from Myanmar
Almost 600,000 civilians have fled from Myanmar to Bangladesh since August. Responding to the humanitarian crisis, Malteser International, the worldwide humanitarian service of the Sovereign Order of Malta, is working with a local partner, setting up mobile medical clinics to help 15,000 people in two refugee camps. 80% of the refugees are women and children. There is a lack of access to clean water and basic amenities and the children are at high risk of life-threatening malnutrition.
