STORYLINE:

United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR) and other UN agencies and aid partners on Saturday relocated 263 Rohingya refugees facing extreme risk of landslides in the Kutapalong refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, to new shelters at a more secure, planned extension site of the camp.

The emergency relocation efforts come as UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and World Bank President Jim Yong Kim visit Bangladesh, accompanied by the heads of the UN Refugee Agency and UNFPA, to bolster support for efforts carried out on behalf of more than 700,000 refugees who fled Myanmar since August 2017. Images, and interviews with relocated family and UNHCR expert.

UNHCR and partners have been at work on Camp 4 Extension site in the Kutupalong extension for months with the aim of providing planned, secure shelter for Rohingya refugee families who are living in makeshift homes at high risk of landslides and flooding. 

SOUNDBITE (English) Yahya Hassune, associate field officer, UNHCR:
“We are actually in the monsoon time, and with the heavy rain all this land will really be at high risk of landslides. So, we picked people in the highest category of risk of landslides, and we are trying to relocate them to different camps.”

Efforts by the Bangladesh government, UN agencies and humanitarian partners are in full swing to safeguard up to 42,000 people who at greatest risk in the monsoon season. Some 18,000 refugees have already been relocated to safer ground. The Camp 4 Extension site, when complete, will have room for 5,000 households, or some 21,000 individuals.

 Storms have so far this season caused at least 315 reported incidents, including 140 landslides, that have injured 33 and killed at least one refugee. More than 29,000 in the sprawling refugee settlement have so far been affected by lashing rains and strong winds, buffeting their fragile shelters. Nearly 2,900 have been displaced.

 UN Secretary-General António Guterres and World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim are in Bangladesh on a two-day visit to seek support for the nearly one million Rohingya refugees in the country. Their delegation also includes UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi and UN Population Fund Executive Director Natalia Kanem. The trip is also aimed at mobilizing more support for a key US$950 million humanitarian aid plan for the Rohingya emergency that remains just 26 per cent funded.
