Devastating Fire Hits Rohingya Camps

“For many, there is nothing left.”

On Monday, March 22, a devastating fire tore through the overcrowded Balukhali refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. The fire destroyed thousands of tents and huts, killed several people, and led to countless refugees without homes or shelter.

MedGlobal’s health team in Bangladesh is responding by providing emergency medical services to those affected by the fire. Within the first 24 hours after the fire subsided, our team treated 67 wounded people. Medical assistance is particularly important, as several health facilities at Balukhali were completely destroyed by the fire.

Our medical team in Cox’s Bazar will continue to work with health partners to treat those who were wounded in the fire and its aftermath, provide emergency medical services, and assess the most critical priorities for those affected. Support is urgently needed for this emergency medical response.

“I have never seen such a fire. The camp is decimated, and even now that the fire subsided, people are still getting burns from the coals and the melted plastic around the camp. These people have been displaced two times. For many, there is nothing left.”
