After Myanmar's army carried out the 'ethnic cleansing' of the Rohingya in Rakhine state. More than half million fled to Bangladesh. During this brutal military crackdown hundreds dead and thousands of villages burned to the ground. After several day's of walk through canal, hill and muddy path a mother with her new born baby and other children safely reached on refugee camp in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. Bangladesh Government allocating 2,500 acres (3.9 square miles) of land to shelter the Rohingya people. This photograph of Rohingya children was taken from a Rohingya refugee camp in Ukhiya, Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. Children are always curious by nature. During my visit at camp I have noticed a group of children were watching us from their tent with curiosity .
