Rohingya Women Find Safe Haven In "Widow's Village" At Cox's Bazar

COX'S BAZAR, BANGLADESH - JANUARY 18: Swahila (pink) teaches Koran on January 18, 2018 in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. Swahila, 19, arrived 3 months ago from Buthidaung township in Myanmar. She says that one day the military attacked her village, burned all the houses, slit the throats of young boys, threw young children and babies onto fires and took away the beautiful girls. When the brothers of the girls protested, their necks were slit. It took her 10 days to walk to Bangladesh. She says that she feels happy she has the opportunity to take care of and be responsible for the other women. "Here, we all share together, we're all friends. We don't want to go back." In the refugee settlement of Balukhali, over 116 widows and orphans have found shelter within a dense settlement of 50 red tents where no men or boys over the age of 10 years old are allowed. More than 655,000 Muslim Rohingya have crossed the border into Bangladesh since August last year, when they fled Rakhine state after the Myanmar military launched a brutal crackdown which was described by the United Nations as "ethnic cleansing". Women and girls reportedly make about 51 percent of the distressed and traumatized Rohingya population in the refugee camps and face a high risk of being victims of human trafficking and sexual abuse, while adolescent girls aged between 13 and 20 risk getting involved in forced marriages. Many of the Rohingya women travelled alone after their husbands had been killed or taken away during the attacks on Rohingya villages as many continue to fear returning home due to the lack of security guarantees.
