    Reported by:

    A Rohingya baby mins after being born in one of the temporary refugee camps in Ukhia district of Bangladesh. A Rohingya midwife is providing the medical care, who volunteers at Al-Markazul Islami. There're currently upwards of 2000 pregnancies in the camps and supporting the mothers has been a real challenge for the NGO's. The mother had to be carried to the nearest pregnancy clinic in a blanket tied to a bamboo pole on the shoulders of men of the family just 15 mins after a normal delivery.

    This is a well composed photo sharing a tender moment in the caring of a newborn — and then when I find out the baby was born in a refugee camp, I care even more. Over half a million Rohingya people have fled their home in Myanmar for Bangladesh since August 2017; the UN declares this situation the "world's fastest growing refugee crisis." Thank you for taking the time to write a detailed caption that helps inform the viewer further into the story behind the photo. Well done Shantanu.
