After Myanmar's army carried out the 'ethnic cleansing' of the Rohingya in Rakhine state. More than half million fled from Myanmar violence including 340,000 children (till october 2017 acoording to UNICEF). These children are seeing “hell on Earth” in overcrowded, muddy and disease-infested refugee camps in neighbouring Bangladesh, and according to UNICEF. Most of those crossing into Bangladesh arrive exhausted, sick and hungry after several days of journey. And many of them facing massive mental health. Bangladesh Government allocates 2,500 acres of land to shelter the Rohingya people.
