UN migration agency describes refugees’ ‘misery’ in B'desh

UN migration agency describes refugees’ ‘misery’ in B'desh

United Nations, Jul 12 (UNI) Heavy monsoon rains continue to batter refugees in southern Bangladesh where UN aid teams have reported six landslides in just 24 hours and more people forced to leave their damaged shelters.

Seven days after lashing camps in Cox’s Bazar, the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) on Thursday said that about 1,000 people had been affected by severe weather in the past 24 hours, causing “misery” for already vulnerable communities.

Teams are working day and night to provide emergency services to those affected, IOM reported, while also warning about worsening damage to paths, bridges and drainage systems.

According to the agency, more than 45,000 people have been affected by monsoon damage so far this year, compared to 55,000 impacted during the whole of last year’s rainy season.
