A day in the Ukhiya camp, home of 625,000 Rohingya refugees

A day in the Ukhiya camp, home of 625,000 Rohingya refugees December, 21 2018

We arrived at Cox's Bazar, a fishing port located along a 120-km stretch of beaches in southeast Bangladesh that draw the richest Bangladeshis. Paradoxically, this small seaside town is also a hub for expats working in nearby refugee camps. After 20 hours on planes flight, 10 hours of layovers, 4 airports, and a ride in a tum-tum (the Bangladeshi version of a tuk-tuk) I'm relieved to have finally arrived at my hotel and get a bit of rest. Tomorrow will be my first day in a refugee camp. The Ukhiya region is now crowded with 625,000 people, all waiting for a better future.
