Since 25 August 2017, more than 625,000 people fled violence in northern areas of Myanmar’s Rakhine State over the border into Bangladesh. The bulk of the new arrivals are living in makeshift settlements in the Cox’s Bazar district in dire conditions. This is one of the largest and most complex crises in the region in decades. The IFRC and 30 Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies are supporting Bangladesh Red Crescent operations.
