There are about 931,000 registered Rohingya refugees living in the refugee camps of Ukhia and Teknaf upazilas in Cox’s Bazar, the world’s largest refugee settlement. The Kutupalong Balukhali refugee campsite in Ukhia is the largest and most dense refugee camp in the world, housing more than 630,000 Rohingya refugees. Nearly 30,000 registered Rohingya refugees have been relocated and are living in houses in Bhasan Char, an island off the Bangladeshi coast. All Rohingya refugees living in Cox’s Bazar camps and in Bhasan Char rely on humanitarian assistance to meet their basic needs.
