Killer Rains In A Refugee Camp


This family escaped a massacre in Myanmar alongside 700,000 Rohingya refugees in 2017. But then the rainy season in Bangladesh came, putting 50,000 refugees living in shelters at risk of landslides. Less than half had been relocated to safer settlements.

Ruhul Amin and his family built a makeshift home of tarp and bamboo in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. But then tragedy struck. He lost his daughter to a landslide, one of the first fatalities of the deadly rainy season. AJ+ went to Cox’s Bazar to speak with Ruhul about life in the world’s biggest refugee camp. This is his story.
