Update #3 – MERCY MALAYSIA’S CONTINUAL RESPONSE TO THE ROHINGYA REFUGEE CRISIS IN
COX BAZAR, BANGLADESH
Kuala Lumpur, 17 OCTOBER 2017 – MERCY Malaysia continues to call for urgent action to provide
relief for Rohingya refugees in Cox Bazar, Bangladesh, as the rainy seasons bring forth new challenges such as rising prices of goods and potentially fast-spreading diseases. The refugee camps, spread across 12 designated camps in the Ukhiya and Teknaf sub-districts of Cox’s Bazar, currently house almost a million refugees, with an estimated 60% comprising children, and 4% falling under children who are Unescorted or Separated from their caregivers.
