    The Bangladeshi government is pushing for more support for tens of thousands of Rohingya refugees whose camps are at risk of being washed away in the monsoon season.

    UNHCR and humanitarian partners are in full swing to safeguard up to 42,000 people at greatest risk in the monsoon season. Some 18,000 refugees have already been relocated to safer ground.
