Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh: Lack of maintenance and renovation of necessary places like lavatories and water pump have added Rohingya’s troubles on daily basis in makeshift camps of Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh reports a member of VOR on 31 July 2019.

At Block-B-2, Balukhali 2, five lavatories and a water pump well (drinkable water) were donated by ACF.

Both the lavatories and water pump are used by sheltering Rohingya of nearby three blocks. And for drinking water many Rohingya from far off also comes to collect drinking water.

Since past three month all the lavatories due to the lack of cleanliness got filled and wastes are leaking out to the pedestrian’s area. And it became impossible for people to walk near the lavatories due to the severe pungent smell.

Similarly, for lack of renovation, the water collection area of the water pump cracked at similar times, leaving the water pump tilted.

As Rohingya in the area have no other choice for drinking water, they somehow managed to put some cement sacks and temporarily made it usable.

Since that period, Rohingya in the area have requested ACF, who donated them, as well as other INGOS and NGOs like BRAC and Action Aid in the area several times.

From all of the places till today Rohingya did not receive any help and finally on 21st July they even appealed to them with evidences like pictures, etc.
