STORYLINE
The United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR) said many Bangladeshis are mobilizing from all over the country to assist Rohingya refugees fleeing the violence in Myanmar.

Violence in Myanmar’s Northwestern Rakhine state has driven more than half a million ethnic Rohingya across the border in neighboring Bangladesh.

These refugees wait patiently in the pouring rain. The food packages came from a village 700 kilometres north of here, delivered in person by Bangladeshi citizens who simply want to help.

SOUNDBITE (Bengali) Taish Khan, Volunteer, Bangladeshi citizen:
“We saw the pictures on television and we had to do something. People in the village were eager to donate money. We bought the supplies and drove here. It took us 24 hours.”

Thirteen-year-old Tamina received one of the 7,000 packets handed out.

SOUNDBITE (Rohingya) Tamina, Rohingya child refugee:
“I haven’t eaten a full meal in 2 days. Today I am happy.”

SOUNDBITE (Rohingya) Japoor Ahmed, Rohingya elderly refugee:
“I am grateful to the Bangladeshis who sent this. It will feed my family for two days.”

The humanitarian needs of the Rohingya are many and shelter is critical in an area battered by monsoon rains.

This plastic sheeting is now the sole possession of 18-year-old Abdu Sukkur.

Seventy-five-year-old Suruz Jahan’s journey here was long and difficult.

Back at the rain-soaked field another truck full of supplies arrives; more donations from ordinary Bangladeshis.

Some of the youngest refugees can barely carry what they receive but they are determined, and it will sustain them in the coming days.
