Bangladesh Red Crescent Society provide water, food and other aid to displaced people who have crossed into Coxs Bazar, Bangladesh from Rakhine state, Myanmar.
The Bangladesh Red Crescent Society is providing thousands of litres of purified water and hundreds of safe water storage containers each day to address immediate humanitarian needs of the new arrivals.
Mass arrivals of people from Myanmar is adding huge pressure on limited local resources and public services. Basic services, ranging from food, education and health care, to water, sanitation, and solid-waste management, are greatly strained.
The Bangladesh Red Crescent, supported by the IFRC, has been providing aid and addressing the needs of people who arrived following a wave of violence in northern areas of Rakhine State in October 2016.
