Father and Sick Child

Adbu Rahim (20) holds his sick two-year old son in Than Khali Camp, a makeshift Rohingya camp located near Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. Abdul and his wife walked for 14 days fleeing from the brutal violence that the Myanmar Army has hit upon his and other Rohingya villages in their home country of Myanmar. Abdul has lost his father and all of his belongings as his village was burned to the ground. Since attacks by Rohingya fighters on Myanmar security forces in Rakhine on August 25 sparked a major military backlash more than 350,000 of Myanmar’s 1.1 million ethnic Rohingya minority have fled to Bangladesh, bringing with them stories that they say describe ethnic cleansing. Despite the international community condemning the atrocities being committed, no real action has taken place to help the Rohingya population.
