Since August 2017 more than 740,000 people - mostly women and children – have fled violence in Myanmar to seek safety in the refugee camps of Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh.
Today, 1.3 million people are in need of aid in order to survive, and while the influx has slowed dramatically, people continue to arrive at the camps every day.
The 2019 monsoon season has caused heavy rains to batter the camps, causing flooding and landslides. Destroyed and damaged shelters mean thousands of families are without a safe, dry home. Rain has also blocked roads, impeding access and trapping those most vulnerable. On top of this, the risk of water-borne diseases is high as flood waters have damaged latrines and other sanitation facilities.
More heavy rain is forecast. The situation could turn from bad to worse in a very short space of time.
Red Cross and Red Crescent teams are working day and night in severe weather conditions, doing everything we can to help those in urgent need.
