On the 22 of March 2021, a devastating fire broke out in Kutupalong Balukhali refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. At least 15 people have been killed, 560 injured and hundreds remain missing.
UNHCR is rushing to provide critical assistance and protection to some 45,000 Rohingya refugees who lost their shelters and belongings in the fire, in support of the ongoing response led by the Bangladeshi authorities.
At least 10,000 shelters are estimated to have been destroyed or damaged. Refugees who have been displaced are being temporarily accommodated within the community.
Your support with shelter interventions in Cox’s Bazaar is needed now more than ever.
