WATCH: The Rohingya living in exile, trapped in the forests of Bangladesh

The Rohingya refugee camp near Cox’s Bazar is the largest refugee settlement in the world. There are over 700,000 people living in huts there, 60% of whom are children.

With the arrival of the monsoon season, the Rohingya are doing everything they can to maintain and protect their camp. Even the children are working hard, whilst finding time for play.
