report: Report author Simon Ingram says about one in five children in the area are acutely malnourished, according to Metro News. The report comes ahead of a donor conference Monday in Geneva to drum up funding for the Rohingya. The U.N. children's agency issued a report that documents the plight of children who account for 58 per cent of the refugees who have poured into Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, over the last eight weeks. Many Rohingya refugee children in Bangladesh have witnessed atrocities in Myanmar no child should ever see, and all have suffered tremendous loss, UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake said in a statement. Ingram also warned of threats posed by human traffickers and others who might exploit children in the refugee areas. The refugees need clean water, food, sanitation, shelter and vaccines to help head off a possible outbreak of cholera a potentially deadly water-borne disease. (www.immigrantscanada.com).
