Rohingya Refugees Face Malnutrition

May 4, 2018

More than 700,000 ethnic Rohingya Muslims arrived in Bangladesh last year from neighboring Myanmar, escaping what the United Nations has called ethnic cleansing by Myanmar’s army, an allegation Myanmar denies.

Upon arrival in Bangladesh, many of the refugees were destitute, starving after fleeing army attacks on their villages.

As a result, many families depend on the hot meals handed out at this kitchen by the Action Against Hunger aid group in the town of Ukhiya. The group also provides high-protein biscuits to children to take home after their meal to further supplement their diets.
