The Kutupalong makeshift camp is situation south of Cox’s Bazaar, on the southeastern shore of Bangladesh, next to the official Kutupalong camp, which is operated by the UNHCR. To date, an estimated 22,000 people have flocked to the makeshift camp hoping for recognition and medical assistance. Instead of finding help, they have been told that they cannot stay there.
