Since August 25 more than 600,000 Rohingya people have fled targeted violence in Myanmar and sought safety across the border in Bangladesh, bringing the total of Rohingya refugees in that country to nearly a million. The new arrivals share horrific stories with Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams about their villages being raided and burned and of widespread violence against civilians. They carry the scars from bullet, blast, and stab wounds, severe burns, and sexual violence.

Today I went to the third, and final, place where we are doing medical clinics, in the area of Dakshin Bedkashi.
