A total of 1.2 million Rohingya people have been affected by the crisis in Myanmar, which includes over 650,000 Rohingya refugees arriving in Bangladesh since August 25. The sheer number of refugees has overwhelmed pre-existing refugee camps, with new arrivals seeking shelter anywhere they can find space. A total of 720,000 children - both from new arrivals in Bangladesh, existing Rohingyas and those in vulnerable host communities - are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance,

There are acute shortages of everything, most critically, shelter, food and clean water. Conditions on the ground place children at high risk of water-borne diseases. Children and adolescents, especially girls, are vulnerable to trafficking as different child trafficking groups are active in the region. The needs continue to grow as the influx of Rohingya refugees increase.


UNICEF has been providing a steady stream of supplies such as trucks filled with emergency water, sanitation and hygiene supplies for thousands of Rohingya children. Other supplies include detergent powder, soap, along with sanitary napkins, towels and sandals. In addition, UNICEF is working on identifying malnutrition, strengthening child protection systems, immunization and getting children back in to school to support the spread of life-saving information and psychosocial support.

Long-Term Impact

UNICEF and its partners are scaling up the emergency response in Bangladesh to support the needs of the Rohingya refugee children and their families. In emergencies, children are typically the hardest hit and require support to survive and outlive the physical and mental trauma of displacement. UNICEF is committed to putting children first before, during and after an emergency.
