β€œYes cleaners do come here like other area but they just do very minor cleaning in front on the shelters and they never clean properly,” saya a religious teacher from the area.

β€œThe students comes to the Maktab (religious school) but due to the smell they cannot study properly,” he add further.

To ease their sufferings they are requesting to Bangladesh government and INGOs working in the camp to look up into the situation as soon as possible.

This is not the first camp where Rohingya are suffering due to the lack of cleanliness, earlier many similar cases were reported from several makeshift camps with similar sufferings.
