the rohingya people have been the victims of consistent, deliberate deprivation of basic human rights from multiple organizations and governments. there is no need to call for change if the parties responsible for ensuring change are behind the issues.
The Rohingya crises is often attributed to a series of bigoted violence during a specific time interval, however, the consistent nature of these attacks and their deep-rooted background reveals a much more meticulous reality: a multi-decade long Rohingya Genocide. This interactive research paper hopes to elaborate on this reality by detailing on key socio-economic factors that contribute to degrade the Rohingya standard of living to the extent of extinction.
Through limiting water supply to banning food cultivation, the Myanmar government is being using forces of food deprivation and starvation to lead the Rohingya Genocide.
200 Rohingya villages were burned, 18,000 Rohingya women and girls were raped, 228,000 Rohingya homes were vandalised, over 34,000 Rohingya were thrown into fires, 114,000 others were beaten, and nearly 24,000 Rohingya Muslims were killed. With no end in sight for the systematic violence against the Rohingya people and unclear consequences of their oppressors, the Rohingya people remain to be the most prosecuted ethnic groups in history....read about the rohingya genocide of 2018
Bangladesh's consistent failure to accelerate Rohingya education is a step towards their political agenda to alienate Rohingya populations. With UNICEF's involvement, however, the state of education has massively improved over the last 2 years.explore rohingya education

Since the mass influx of Forcibly Displaced Myanmar Nationals (FDMN) in Bangladesh, there have been severe concerns surrounding the lack of access to WASH facilities (water, sanitation and hygiene) including a lack of provision of clean drinking water, washing and domestic activities; the safe removal of waste (toilets & waste disposal); and the promotion of healthy behavioural practices.
Due to the increasing number of Rohingya refugees and their congested living conditions in camps, there has been an overwhelming increase in their health risks. Refugees and affected community require 9 million litres of safe water daily, and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services are reaching only 30% of the Rohingya people in need.
The Rohingya health crises further extends to poor waste management and a lack of opportunities for safe toilets in their communities. Although grey literature and news articles are available on the waste and sanitary situation in refugee camps in Bangladesh, there are limited systematic studies and scientific literature on WASH issues in Rohingya refugee camps. There is a significant lack in understanding waste flows (packaging waste, bottled drinks, sachets, as well as fecal sludge and other solid and liquid waste) and recycling practices in these refugee camps. This has lead to lifestyle degradation issues for multiple Rohingya households.
