Rohingya refugees’ struggles fail to break Ramadan spirit

Despite the poor living conditions, many refugees who fled Myanmar’s violent crackdown are grateful for their safety.

Muslims who fled Myanmar’s genocidal crackdown say observing the holy month of Ramadan in squalid makeshift camps in Bangladesh comes with many challenges.

There are almost a million Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh and aid agencies are stepping up efforts to build better housing for them that could sustain tough weather conditions.

Despite their struggles, many Rohingya are grateful that they can experience Ramadan safely.
