Futures in the balance
Building hope for a generation of rohingya children
One year ago in August 2017, a dramatic humanitarian crisis unfolded in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. In a matter of weeks, hundreds of thousands of desperate and terrorized people – 60 per cent of them children – poured across the border from Myanmar into Bangladesh, bringing with them accounts of the unspeakable violence and brutality that had forced them to ﬂee. This UNICEF Child Alert calls for a concerted effort to build a new foundation for the rights and opportunities of Rohingya children over the longer term.
