Young and stateless

Around 28,000 refugees from the Rohingya minority in western Burma live in two official camps in Bangladesh. They are the more fortunate ones: hundreds of thousands more live a precarious existence in squalid, unofficial camps like Kutupalong in the country’s eastern Cox’ Bazar, where they cannot access healthcare or education. The Rohingya, long persecuted by the Burmese government, are forced to flee in droves into Bangladesh, despite the fact that Dhaka also denies them citizenship rights.
