Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh are facing serious hunger issues: one quarter of children in the Cox’s Bazar camp are acutely malnourished, with 7.5 percent at a high risk of death from severe malnutrition, according to a study published on Tuesday.
More than 43 percent of children are chronically malnourished, said researchers from the United States’ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the charity Action Against Hunger, and UNHCR.
