Incident Report (3) on Emergency response to the fire in Rohingya refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh

Document Type: Actualizaciones , Comunicados de Prensa
Document Language: English
Some 900 households were affected by the fire, comprising around 5,000 refugees, including 3,500 children. 972 shelters were damaged or fully destroyed. Displaced households have sought temporary shelter in the homes of relatives or other community members, or in community facilities in Camp 5 and adjacent camps. With the help of fellow community members, displaced households are already constructing temporary structures in the fire-affected blocks of Camp 5, to avoid sleeping in other shelters/facilities or under the open sky. A displacement tracker was activated on Day 1, in coordination with SCCCM Sector, to track where people affected by the fire are temporarily staying, to ensure identification and provision of necessary support.
