A child sleeps on the the floor of a hut in the Dum Dum Meah refugee camp. In 1992 more than a quarter of a million Rohingyas (Muslims from Burma) fled from Burma (Myanmar) to Bangladesh. Today, those Rohingyas who cross the border into Bangladesh still find themselves with nowhere to go. They are persecuted by the Burmese junta at home and are not recognised as refugees by the Bangladeshi authorities. The two official refugee camps house about 26,000 people.
