Too Young

In the recent crisis, caused by escalating violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine State, over 500,000 people have crossed the border into Bangladesh, more than half are women and children.  An estimated one in five are pregnant or breastfeeding women. Another one in five are children under five. The refugees have had to travel on risky roads with no food, water and little rest. There is little access to clean water or nutritious food for the pregnant women in the densely populated refugee camps.
