Life on the edge: Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh
MSF doctor Kolja Stille spent nearly a year working in the Nayapara, Kutupalong and Tal refugee camps in Cox's Bazaar District, Bangladesh. Now back in the UK, he tells us about three of the patients he remembers best.
Abdullah was 16 years old. He was brought to the MSF inpatient department in Nayapara with a spinal injury. He had no motor function in his legs and had sustained bed sores in the previous hospital he was in. His mother had run out of money to pay for his treatment. Read the full story.
Kulsuma was a 20-year-old mother of two. She was admitted to the inpatient department in Nayapara after suffering acute heart failure. Without surgery and specialist care, Kulsuma’s life expectancy was a few years at best. Read the full story.
Khatiza was treated for malnutrition along with her youngest child at the inpatient department in Kutupalong. Her twins, aged two-and-a-half, were being treated for malnutrition at a feeding centre nearby, while her 10-year-old daughter and two sons (aged six and nine) stayed with friends in the refugee camp.
