UNHCR needs $83.7 million to respond to massive humanitarian needs in Bangladesh. They need this money to help and support the children, women and men to flee the conflict and keep them healthy and safe.
UNHCR continues to support and boost the program. The camp now has 182 emergency staff in Bangladesh, including 84 national colleagues. They want to evolve the refugee crisis.
UNHCR says, "Our teams remain on full alert amid reports of a potential new influx of refugees by land and sea." They are supporting their government to find new arrivals and assistance with the refugee's.
This is a safe space for the victims of gender-based violence. UNHCR is making a settlement for all refugee's. It's also making an effort to identify and refer children at risk for the appropriate support.
The Kutupalong Extension is so there is a road that leads to the emergency camp so supplies can travel easier and to build wells for better sanitation in their water. They are mostly doing this because of health problems that the refugee's are forming. UNHCR has installed 51 shallow tube wells in this camp and 8 deep tube wells.
They supplied them with tents and other supplies like mosquito nets to prevent disease. They are still planning for more stuff to come their way. UNHCR is also helping the government to developed Kutupalong Extension, a new site near Kutupalong refugee camp.
To these diseases, elderly, children, and pregnant woman are the most vulnerable. The Bangladesh refugee camp is the fastest growing refugee camp today. The UNHCR is contacted with the Bangladesh government to help these people get the supplies that they need.
New refugee families and groups arrived everyday from the ocean on a boat. There is an acute need for emergency service. To prevent diseases, the refugee's need clean water and health care supplies.
The majority of refugees that fled to Bangladesh were woman and children form new born babies to 15 year old's. The elderly people required more aid and protecting. These people have nothing of their own and need anything they can get.
When they arrived at Bangladesh, there weren't many clean resources like water and food. The sanitation was at its lowest levels. Also, the native villages took in some of the refugees but stripped them of their limited resources.
The refugees tell stories of how they survived the violence. They show their wounds and trauma when walking three days through the jungle and war. In their new country, they are constantly wondering when they will see their families again. They live under plastic and sheets, getting water from wells.
They live in tents, plastic sheets, blankets, mosquito nets, kitchen sets and jerry cans. Many refugees are still in temporary shelters, often nothing but a tarpaulin held on bamboo poles.
As more refugees arrive every day there is an little need for emergency shelters, blankets and other forms of aid. To decreases the risk of waterborne and airborne diseases, refugees and host communities need more clean water, health care and other supplies.
