The Rohingya refugee population, living in camps across Cox’s Bazar, remains vulnerable to serious health risks. Refugees reside in overcrowded, tight spaces and continue to live in emergency-like conditions, which increase the threat of potential outbreaks of contagious diseases. MSF continues providing assistance to the refugees and the local community.
Asylum-Seekers, Migrants, and Refugees Stranded in Serbia
On their journey through the Balkans to seek safety and assistance in Europe, many asylum-seekers, refugees, and migrants become stranded in forests and abandoned buildings in Serbia.
They struggle through the cold weather without sufficient food or shelter, and have limited access to basic medical care. What's more, they are often exposed to criminal networks, physical attacks, and robberies.
The European Union (EU) asylum system has so far failed to offer them aid and protection upon arrival.
