Rohingya are an ethnic minority group in Myanmar, formerly Burma, who occupy the western littoral state of Rakhine. The onset of violence in August 2017 has prompted the greater part of a million Rohingyas to cross the border to Bangladesh. Currently, there are 900,000 refugees in Cox’s Bazaar. Rationed food supplies of pulses, oil and rice are provided. However, cooking fuel is procured by trekking to the peripheries of the forest near the camps and chopping down trees or on the black market through a barter system.
