There are many Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh. The largest of these is located in Camp Cox’s Bazar, which houses about one million refugees. They came here four years ago after fleeing from the neighboring country of Myanmar. In 2017, Myanmar’s military took action while campaigning against the Rohingyas.
