UN beating alarm about fled Rohingya children

cox's bazar - The United Nations is alarming the fate of half a million minor Rohingy refugees in Bangladesh. They live in crowded camps, have no access to good education and do not know when to return safely to their homeland Myanmar.

UN Children's Rights Organization UNICEF says that international help is needed to prevent young people from falling prey to 'despair and frustration. 'Rohingya crossed the border en masse from Myanmar last year. That happened when Myanmar security forces reacted with great force to attacks by Rohingya insurgents.

Arranging education for refugee children turned out to be a huge effort, according to UNICEF. 'In July 2018, about 1,200 learning centers were operational, almost 140,000 children use them. However, there is no coordinated curriculum, classrooms are often overcrowded and lack the availability of drinking water and other facilities, 'according to the UN organization, which has issued a report on the problems.

UNICEF calls on the international community to invest in good education. This should prevent a 'lost generation' from emerging from young people who lack crucial skills and who will soon be unable to contribute to their communities. The organization must also look for a sustainable solution to the problems in Rakhine, the state where the refugees come from.
