A Year of Fires - Doc Sábbá Issue #7

A Year of Fires - Doc Sábbá Issue #7
By Doc Sábbá  • Issue #7 • View online
A year ago, on 22nd March 2021, the Rohingya camps witnessed a massive fire.
9500 refugee shelters were destroyed. Over 500 were injured. Approximately 50,000 people were displaced. Young children went missing. And there were at least 15 fatalities.
Since that fateful day, there have many fires in Rohingya camps. In January of this year there were 3 fires. There was one in Camp 20 Extension, one in Camp 16 and one in Camp 5. These affected thousands of people and damaged several community facilities including a health facility.
Now in the month of March, there has again been a massive fire affecting thousands of people in Camp 5.
Rohingya refugees have very little in the way of possessions. These fires destroy their possessions and affect their physical and psychological well being.
