Rohingya Refugee Rural Slum; Kutupalong, Bangladesh, Mar 2015

The Rohingya people are a Muslim minority group historically based in Rakhine state, Myanmar. The Rohingya people are considered “stateless entities”, as the Myanmar government has been refusing to recognise them as one of the ethnic groups of the country. To escape persecution and hostility, the Rohingya people have being fleeing Myanmar and Bangladesh in high numbers. From January to March in 2015, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees estimates that 25,000 people have been taken to boats by human traffickers. There are claims that around 100 people died in Indonesia, 200 in Malaysia, and 10 in Thailand (see 2015 Wiki 'Rohingya Refugee Crisis' page for more information) Featured in this photo report are scenes of Rohingya refugees settled in rural slums around the UNCHR-government run camp of Kutupalong. Unlike the refugees settled in the UNCHR camp, who are entitled to shelter, food rations, access to school and health services, the unregistered refugees in the slum are considered illegal migrants and therefore don’t have access to any government or UN services.

In Myanmar/Burma, the Rohingya have very limited access to basic services and viable livelihood opportunities. Many live in camps where they have only limited access to health care and education, and no livelihood opportunities. Since 2012, widespread inter-communal violence has put Rohingya in an increasingly diffcult situation.

Myanmar's Rakhine State: different realities of displaced, confined and resettled communities

Following the inter-communal violence which erupted in 2012, many people from minority groups were forced to leave their house and find refuge in camps. Others were confined to their villages without the possibility to leave them, whatever the reason. Rakhine (Buddhist) people instead were resettled in new houses in villages located in majority-Muslim areas. In this album, the villages, camps and shelters of Rakhine, Rohingya and Maramagyi people speak of the difference life conditions of these communities in Myanmar.
