Fatima, 7, collects water three or four times a day to help her family who are among the 1.2 million Rohingya refugees living in camps near Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. Fatima’s family of 9 were among the children, women and men who fled Myanmar and are now living in overcrowded camps as a new threat has emerged -- cyclone and monsoon season. Like many Rohingya children who have witnessed brutal violence and trauma, Fatima is shy around strangers. She keeps her head down as she quietly shows us how she fills her bucket with water from a stagnant pool.  Dirty water has already posed a problem for Fatima and her family. “My sister is sick,” she says. “My brother had fever.” Handwashing with soap is being widely taught to children as a way of avoiding disease. With a little prompting, Fatima shows how she, too, has learned to wash her hands. Forgetting her shyness for a moment, a huge smile creeps across her face.  UNICEF knows that in areas where fresh water is in short supply, circumstances might dictate that children are exposed to water that can spread diseases. This problem can increase as the cyclone and monsoon season approaches. We are preparing for the expansion of water trucking, pre-positioning of water storage tanks, and setting up chlorination points to help prevent disease.

Rohingya refugees do their afternoon washing up at a water pump in Shamlapur refugee camp, Cox's Bazaar District, Bangladesh, Monday 5 March 2018. As of 25 February 2018, more than 671,000 Rohingya people have fled Myanmar and sought refuge in neighboring Bangladesh since an outbreak of violence began on 25 August 2017. UNICEF and its partners are working to provide for the needs of this enormous refugee population who will be all the more vulnerable during the upcoming monsoon and cyclone seasons.

Rohingya refugee children make their way home after attending UNICEF’s Kokil Learning Centre at the Unchiprang makeshift settlement in Teknaf, Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, Tuesday 2 January 2018. The influx of Rohingya refugees from northern parts of Myanmar’s Rakhine State into Bangladesh restarted following attacks at Myanmar Border Guard Police posts on 25 August 2017. As of 21 December 2017, the Inter-Sector Coordination Group (ISCG) reported that 655,000 Rohingya refugees have entered Bangladesh since the attacks. According to ISCG’s rapid needs assessment, 58 per cent of new arrivals are children and 60 per cent are girl children and women including a high number of pregnant (3 per cent) and lactating women (7 per cent). A total of 453,000 Rohingya and Bangladeshi host community’s affected children aged 4–18 years urgently need access to education, including 270,000 newly arrived Rohingya children. In response, UNICEF aims to reach at least 201,765 children aged 4–14 years, including 50,000 children in host communities. To provide learning opportunities to these children, UNICEF aims to train 3,500 teachers and construct 1,448 learning centres in refugee settlements and camps.
