More than 140,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled to Bangladesh since Aug. 25, amidst allegations of mass killings and the systematic burning of Rohingya villages by Myanmar security forces. Approximately 400 have been killed in the clashes, with 80% of those affected being women and children. An estimated 400,000 Rohingya are forced to live in schools and community centres, and refugee camps in Bangladesh. These people are now fleeing to a country that has been flooded and has left hundreds of thousands displaced and lacking access to basic food and clean water.
