Basic Education Gap is Gonna Be a Vital Factor for the Rohingya New Generation.
Children need to be educated with the knowledge of science, sanitation, safety, health, math, English, computing and other vital subjects in comparison to learning arabics mentioned by the president of Mercy Refugees House. This is high time we changed their mind and skill to be productive both to their community and country. If they are well trained and educated, they will work like candles which will enlighten more candles.
Rohingya refugee children who lack proper education in camps in Bangladesh could become a “lost generation”.
The lives and futures of more than 380,000 children in refugee camps in Bangladesh are in peril, while hundreds of thousands of Rohingya children still in Myanmar are cut off from aid, said a report by the UN children’s agency (Unicef).
Bangladesh prohibits refugees from receiving formal education, because the government is concerned the predominantly Muslim Rohingya population might become a “permanent fixture”, Unicef spokesman said.
One in two Rohingya children who fled to Bangladesh without their parents were orphaned by violence, while more than 6,000 children living in Cox’s Bazar are alone or have to fend for themselves, a study by charity Save the Children found this week.Aid agencies have managed to provide basic services, but the crisis is far from over.
Learning is the only way to Develop Quality and Better Life Style since education can enhance everything.
Digital materials like four tablets were given and donated for the teacher and students.
One is for teacher and Three are for Students.

This picture is one of the examples of many schools where students are provided with education, knowledge and playing opportunities- On the other hand, Chess game is taught only in Mercy Refugees House – English forty Schools which is exceptionally special step by the president of the organization.
This is one of the classes of an organization where teachers are working as paid volunteers. A teacher who has completed her graduation from Sittwe University, Myanmar and she is 25 years old who has forty students in Two shifts. Morning shift has twenty students and afternoon shift has twenty more students.
The students require educational materials like bags, umbrellas, sitting tables, floor mat, books, pencils etc. Recently, Mercy Refugees House Team paid a visit to his class and discovered the necessities.
There was an interesting thing found asking the students whereas one of the students- Nurul Karim responded while he was asked to compare Schools here in Bangladesh and there in Myanmar. He said that there was a life of better school days as school houses were large along side there was tin shed houses having cows in the house which allowed them to have milk and meat.

Life seems to be endless pain for the Rohingya Refugees as Rain water in penetrating the tent roofs.
Heavy rain has been continuously disturbing the normal life in the Rohingya Refugees camps both at Teknaf and Ukhiya in Coxbazar. Many people are unable to go to the market places for taking their reliefs.
People are facing problems in walking from one place to another as wet muddy roads are very slippery. Old people and women are prone to injury. On the other hand, it has been notified by the weather department that rain may continue this whole month and create flood situation in Chittagong, Coxbazar and Bandarban.
One of our team member named Abu Syed who has been living in Balukhali Camp has told to our correspondence, “Rain is very heavy and it falls very dangerously. Many people lost their tents since water has submerged them”.
Sufferings know no bounds when there is a scarcity of food and proper shelter and sometimes due to heavy wind, shelters were needed to be rebuilt. He added.
So, it is high time to make the whole community very alert and provide them enough support.

“Sitagu offered scriptural justifications for ‘killing millions of non-Buddhists”
In November last year, the International Criminal Court (ICC) moved to begin the full investigation into Myanmar’s violent international crimes and other events connected to the exodus of Rohingya from western Myanmar in decades.
In August 2017, Myanmar Tatmadaw, or the military, launched the “Security Clearance Operations,” which resulted in the exodus of 750,000 Rohingya from across the borders into the adjacent Bangladesh city of Teknaf.
As the ICC proceeds with its full investigation, it needs to look into the instrumental role of Sitagu Sayadaw, Myanmar’s most influential Saffron-robed hate preacher, in the genocidal and other crimes against predominantly Muslim Rohingya.
The ICC was set up in the Hague in 2002 to try individuals sufficiently linked to grave crimes under international law owing to their criminal responsibility, for instance, political and military leaders of the perpetrating state, militia heads and key civilians.
There is heavy rain in Cox bazaar as Sea at Bay of Bengal seems very chaotic and weather forecast department is declaring more rain as there is Signal given to all sea ports of Bangladesh along with the soft signal number THREE to Cox bazaar .
So, life is getting affected by the rain around
as Terrible Muddy, Soggy and Floody Condition Within two days of the rains starting, humanitarian agencies reported some many incidents, including landslides, water logging get common view.
The risks remains huge, given the vast size and nature of the congested, makeshift camps. The hilly terrain is now largely bare of vegetation and the rains have made the soil extremely unstable, increasing the risk of large scale flooding and landslides.

Rohingya Camp fire added Sufferings in Between Corona pandemic and Food Shelter Crisis.
It was 12 May 2020 Monday while there was another horrible day appeared for the Rohingya Refugees as fire destroyed their shelters.
Near about 400 shelters were totally burnt and many more were half burned.
Romij Molla, 48 years old man who have been living in the camp for more than 29 months told to our team that the fire reminded them about the fire lit by the Burmese Army and terrorist while they were in Myanmar.
The people who lost their last hope just want to make sure that they could fast and get enough help during this Ramadan.
The situation was horrible and many NGOs were trying their best but aids weren’t enough to support so many people at a time.
During the past several years, I have been documenting the plight of the Rohingya Muslim ethnic minority by capturing their dire everyday life in the Rakhine region of Myanmar and in Bangladesh, portraying them as human beings deprived of their social, civil and human rights that are so often taken for granted in our society.
My intention is to document the violent ethnic cleansing campaigns turning into genocide while under the pretext of so-called security operations by Myanmar forces.
The first attack by the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) on Myanmar border police forces in October 2016 caused a widespread and disproportionate wave of retaliation on the Rohingya community. Although less covered by the media, this wave of atrocities caused some 100’000 refugees to flee to Bangladesh with evidence of summary executions, burning down villages and mass rape as clear indicators of severe ethnic cleansing and more annihilation to come.
Following the 25 August 2017 attack by ARSA on Myanmar police posts, another widespread “security operation” of Myanmar military forces sweeps throughout all the municipalities of Rakhine where Rohingya were present and causes another three-quarter of a million refugees to flee to Bangladesh to date and still counting.
Widespread killings, torture, disproportionate retaliation attacks turn to the mayhem of ethnic cleansing evolving into genocide.
Throughout, the access to Rakhine state for media and humanitarian actors has been extremely restricted and nearly impossible, as no witnesses of the denied barbarism are wanted. It’s estimated that no more than 350’000 to 450’000 Rohingya remain in Rakhine nowadays, of which more than half live in open air like prison camps in the periphery of the Rakhine State capital Sittwe and Paktauw township.
For years in Myanmar, if Kyaw Hla Maung, a historian, were to roll up his sleeves and bare his arms he might have been arrested. His arms are tattooed with an unusual a script with vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines and clusters of dots, the ancient Brahmi language of the Rakhine or Arakanese people from Myanmar’s Rakhine State.
“I had to wear shirts with long sleeves,” he said. “Even if it was a hot day I still wore a long shirt so I wouldn’t get caught.”
The Rakhine people, one of the 135 officially recognised ethnic minority groups that live in Myanmar, were forbidden from speaking their language or studying their history from 1962 under a forced assimilation policy. However, since 2015 some schools have allowed the teaching of mother-tongue languages as a second language.
So, Kyaw Hla Maung chose not to record his teachings on paper but instead tattooed the consonants and vowels of one of the ancient Brahmi script on his skin.
Last year, Rakhine State made headlines around the world because of a military crackdown, which forced more than 600,000 Rohingya into neighbouring Bangladesh. The Rakhine consider the Rohingya outsiders from Bangladesh, and in some cases, have participated in the violence against them.
What is less known is that the Rakhine people also have a history of being oppressed – by the Burmese military, which enforced a rule of ‘Burmanisation’ or forcing the culture of the Burmese people on the country’s various ethnic groups, many of whom have been at war with the central government since Myanmar’s independence from the British.
