Combined with a lot of stress, the fight for water

Someone is bathing and others are busy with smoke and smoke. The children are also standing by the line, waiting for the opportunity when the stars will move away. Here, 100 to 150 Rohingya families use each tube. 85 percent of shallow tubewells installed at the beginning of the Rohingyas are now in vain. As a result, Rohingyas have a severe crisis of drinking water.
The Directorate of Public Health Engineering, Ukhia said that 338 government officials have been installed in the Rohingya camps till now and 473 deep tube wells have been set up privately. Apart from this, 20 percent of the deep tube wells set up by NGOs are inefficient. Many deep tube-wells are being rendered inadequate due to lack of reform.

Due to the drop in the water level in the dry season, water is coming in few tube wells. Can not meet the needs of everyone with this little water. As a result, there is a severe crisis of food water in Ukhia's Rohingya camps.
