Market places, houses, mosques, medical camps etc are altogether around. People remain busy in collecting food for the family. The common daily picture is this in the camps.
Authorities have already identified 70,000 new or expectant mothers among the latest influx from Myanmar, and fear without intervention the population pressures could worsen in coming months as the crisis drags on.
“They have six, seven, eight, nine, 10 children,” said Pintu Kanti Bhattacharjee, head of the government’s family planning department in Cox’s Bazar district where the camps are located.
“We are very worried. If they are here for another six months to a year, another 20,000 children will be born.”
Mothers with newborns, pregnant women and enormous families with more than 10 children are not uncommon among the camps.
